In a shocking incident, three-four men in a black Scorpio tried to run over the station house officer (SHO) of Sector 29 police station as he tried to stop them near JMD Mall on MG Road on Friday night.
The occupants of the SUV not only rammed the SHO’s vehicle but also injured three bystanders, sources said.
The injured include two men and a woman who were taken to the hospital for treatment.
The incident happened at 1.15 am. A case under section 307 (attempt to murder) has been registered against the accused the police said.
Speaking to HT, SHO Vikas Kaushik said he had information about a suspicious looking black Scorpio parked close to the JMD Mall. “One of our PCR vans had been tailing the SUV. As soon the occupants spotted my vehiclen in front, they stepped on the accelerator. As I got off my vehicle and tried to stop them, they tried to run me over and rammed my car. Three bystanders were injured in the melee,” Kaushik said.
The PCR chased the SUV as it sped away, but the occupants managed to give cops the slip. The officers, however, managed to take down the registration number of the Scorpio. The SUV is registered in Delhi.
It is suspected that the occupants took the Golf Course Road and escaped towards Faridabad. The vehicle aroused suspicion, as it was parked close to the mall and had tinted windows. Except for the contours of the occupants, nothing much was visible inside the vehicle, the police said.
Though the policemen deployed on MG Road were promptly alerted, the accused, it appears, were well versed with the routes and managed to get away.
“The statement of the three injured persons is being recorded and a case will be registered against the accused,” Kaushik said in the morning. The police also said that if the injured aren’t willing to register a case, the police will book the accused suo moto.
A senior official of the Gurgaon police said that the vehicle used by the accused has been identified and the culprits would be nabbed soon.
Earlier on June 9, the occupants of a speeding Fortuner, got into a brawl with the SHO when asked to pull over by the Sector 29 police.
