During a routine check, a white car was stopped by the cops as it was being driven rashly. The cops asked the driver to show his driving license. The driver, an engineering student, was reportedly not carrying his driving license. Soon the cops realized that the driver was drunk as he was slurring while talking to them and was smelling of alcohol as well.
The on-duty cop asked the driver to stop the car and get down. The student refused. Soon the cop asked for help from his colleagues who were busy with others at the checkpost. Once more cops arrived, the student decided to flee. He managed to flee in spite of a rickshaw and barricade blocking the road. Below is the shocking incident caught on camera.
