In a shocking incident, a traffic cop was dragged on the car bonnet in Nagpur's Sakkardara area after he tried to stop the driver for breaking traffic norms on Sunday.

The video of the incident was shared by news agency ANI, in which it can be seen that a man driving the car dragged a police officer on the car's bonnet in Nagpur. The driver even hits a couple on a two-wheeler while trying to run away.

According to reports, the incident took place on Sunday around 5 pm when traffic constable Amol Chidamwar tried to stop the car after the driver, Akash Chavan, violated traffic rules in Nagpur's Sakkardara area. The driver was later arrested by the police.

"Traffic constable Amol Chidamwar was on duty at the square and managing the traffic. Around 5 pm, he saw a car with tinted glass on the windshield. He signalled the car to stop. However, instead of stopping, the driver increased the speed in a bid to escape," an official was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

Giving more details about the incident, the official said, "The constable tried to stop the car by standing in the middle of the road. However, as the vehicle was speeding, the policeman jumped on the car bonnet and clung on to it. However, the accused did not stop the car and kept on driving with the cop on the bonnet for around half a kilometre."

The driver finally stopped the vehicle near a college, where people caught hold of him and thrashed him.

The accused, who is an aide of a notorious local criminal, was arrested by the police and an offence under Sections 353, 307 of Indian Penal Code and provisions of Motor Vehicle Act was registered against him.
