The Aroma traffic crossing, witnessed a traffic jam and high drama for about half an hour after a non-resident Indian woman was challaned for five offences by the UT police here on Tuesday evening.
According to the police, the woman, identified as Meenakshi, was signalled down by cops at the Aroma crossing after she took a wrong turn. But instead of halting, she sped and almost hit a woman traffic cop.
Meenakshi, driving a car bearing Himachal Pradesh registration number, then had an argument with traffic cops after being stopped at a distance from the crossing.
The police have impounded her car and challaned her for five offences, including taking a wrong right turn, driving without valid license and registration certificate, misbehaving and rash driving in the presence of a police official on duty. She even refused to give out basic information including her address and name.
Despite repeated attempts, Meenakshi could not be reached for comment.
