Angry over police not removing barricades set up on roads to check crime on New Year Eve, four young men allegedly ran their car over a 40-year-old constable in east Delhi and injured him.
Constable Naval Kishore escaped with a fracture on the arm besides some other injuries in the incident that took place near V3S mall in Laxmi Nagar around 10 pm yesterday, a senior police official said on Saturday. The four youths Chandan (32), Tarun (24), Sandeep (26) and Jaswinder (25) were in their car and demanded that barricades near the mall be removed, as they could not go past them.
There was enough way to do that and when the policemen pointed out this, two of them got into an argument with the police. They suddenly got into the car and then drove past Kishore hitting him, the official said. The police arrested Chandan, Tarun and Sandeep Saxena. Jasbir is missing.
Kishore was rushed to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital where doctors said he was in a stable condition.
