The Gurgaon police arrested two men on Thursday evening in connection with an incident last week where a Scorpio tried to run over the station house officer (SHO) of Sector 29 on MG Road. Three bystanders were injured in the incident. The two men were picked up from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road.
The incident took place last Friday night. Two men in a black Scorpio, which was parked near JMD Mall on MG Road, hit the accelerator and tried to run over the SHO after being told to pull over by the police. The SUV missed the SHO, but hit his vehicle instead and also injured three bystanders. Though the police chased the youths, they managed to escape.
“The Scorpio had tinted glasses and we weren’t able to identify the persons in it. We initially thought there were 3-4 men, but investigations revealed that only two men were in the car at the time,” Vikas Kaushik, SHO of Sector 29, said.
The police had no information about the accused except for partly noting down the vehicle’s registration plate as it sped away.
“We went through a series of registration numbers and found that only one black Scorpio was issued a new registration number. On contacting the owner, who resides in Delhi, we got to know that the car had been gifted to the owner’s brother-in-law, Sachin Dyma (who was driving the car on the night of the incident),” Kaushik said.
The SHO said the police tracked the location of the car and nabbed the two on Thursday around 5pm from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road.
Dyma, who has been identified as the main accused, hails from Faridabad. He, along with his friend Tinu Nagar, who resides in Noida, was arrested and the black Scorpio was seized. No weapons or illegal items were found in the car.
Kaushik said that the two, aged around 20, were drunk that night and on seeing the police, they panicked.
“They said they got scared after the cops asked them to stop their vehicle. They said they had been consuming alcohol. The SUV had tinted glasses( which is in violation of the rules). They hit the police car and injured three bystanders as they tried to get away,” the SHO said.
While Sachin is doing a diploma in civil engineering from Lingaya’s University in Faridabad, Tinu is a class 10 dropout, the police said.
The two will be produced before a magistrate on Friday afternoon.
The Gurgaon police launched a drive on MG Road after reports of alleged drink driving and molestation in the area.
On Sunday, rapper Fazilpuria was seen arguing with the cops after being caught allegedly for drink driving.
Earlier on June 9, the occupants of speeding Fortuner which was asked to pull over by the police, allegedly got into a brawl with the cops.
