According to the cop's complaint, the men approached her near the Science Park area and followed her even as she diverted the route and reached near Police Reserve Ground.

Three were arrested Thursday on charges of chasing a woman cop and hurling abuses at her while she was returning home in her car, reports said. The incident took place earlier this week in Bhubaneswar when three men – in their SUV – allegedly chased sub-inspector Subhasree Nayak and threatened her with a sword, news agency PTI reported. Nayak works with the Mahila Police Station and she was on her way home from night duty.

He said that the SUV has been seized and a stern action would be taken against the accused. The three men were arrested from different localities of Bhubaneswar.
