The incident took place a few days ago near Patel Nagar Metro station.

 

The said officials were on traffic duty when they spotted a man riding a bike without a helmet. His wife was riding pillion. When the police asked him to stop the bike and pay fine, he tried to dodge the cops. The police personnel became angry, chased the biker and caught hold of him.
