Gurgaon: Brandishing one's political associations and power is not new in India, but this time a 'fearless' Gurgaon resident didn't stop there. After hitting and dragging a traffic policeman on the bonnet of his car, the man proudly announced, "My uncle is in police. Do whatever you want".

The incident occurred near Signature Tower Chowk on Wednesday when a traffic officer tried to stop the driver for entering the wrong side of the road. Instead of obeying the personnel, the accused hit the officer with his car and tried to escape. The cop leapt onto the car bonnet to prevent him from fleeing but was dragged for 100 metres before the driver finally halted the vehicle.

The officer then confronted the driver and asked him to show his driving documents. However, the accused remained unperturbed and took out his mobile phone. He asked the officer to talk to the man over phone. The driver then pointed, "chacha hain mere police mein (my uncle is in police). This car is his."

The man has been identified as 32-year-old Karan, who stays in Delhi's Dwarka. He was arrested and his car has been seized, a police official said, adding that further investigation into the matter in underway.

A video of the incident has drawn public wrath with netizans pouring out anger over "high profile people misusing power".

In April, a traffic cop in Delhi was forced to jump on to the bonnet of a car after the driver refused to stop at the checkpoint and tried to run him over. The policeman injured his hand as he clung on to the bonnet, which raced away on a busy highway.

India has among the world's highest road accident rates. Claiming lives of nearly 1,600 people in road accidents or roughly five deaths per day - Delhi has the deadliest roads, according to the statistics compiled by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in its report titled 'Road Accidents in India 2016'.
