A 32-year-old man finds himself behind bars after he allegedly misbehaved with international woman wrestler Poonam Bamal in an incident of road rage in Bhiwani, 48km from here, on Friday.

Sent in 14-day judicial custody on Saturday under sections 294 (obscene act) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), labourer Dharambir Kumar’s bike had hit 28-year-old Bamal, who was crossing the road on foot, near Meham Chowk.

Though both escaped unhurt, Bamal, who on her way to a training session, sought an apology from Dharambir. But an argument started, leading to a fistfight between the two, and the policemen deputed nearby detained Dharambir who allegedly hurled abuses at Bamal.

Later, Bamal gave a written complaint and a case was registered, said sub-inspector Ram Kishan posted at the Civil Lines police station.

Bamal, who was ranked fourth in the World Senior Wrestling Championship in 2005 in Hungary, has won several national medals.
