New Delhi: In two separate incidents, foreign nationals allegedly assaulted two persons, including a traffic cop in South Delhi.

In the first incident, two foreign nationals allegedly thrashed the driver of a private cab aggregator attached to Ola cabs on his head, leaving him bleeding profusely after they allegedly got involved in a heated argument over cab fare.

 

According to complainant Uday Kumar Pal (34), he was ferrying three foreign nationals from Ambience Mall to Rajpura. In his plaint, Mr Pal stated that when the cab reached the desired destination in Rajpura near Chhatarpur, the fare came to Rs 175. When Mr Pal demanded the fare, two of his passengers allegedly began quarreling with him and refused to give him the money. When Mr Pal insisted, the two got enraged and allegedly beat him up. It was the third passenger who came to his rescue.

Meanwhile, a patrolling cop reached the spot and inquired about the situation. Mr Pal narrated his ordeal, following which the cop allegedly asked him to undergo a medical test.

 

Mr Pal also alleged that as directed by the cop, when he approached the jurisdictional station to register a plaint, the cops shooed him away and refused to register the complaint.

In another incident, a US citizen of Indian origin allegedly thrashed a traffic constable who stopped him for driving without a seat belt.

Police said that constable Narveer was on duty on Africa Avenue in South Delhi along with two other personnel, on Wednesday morning, when he tried to stop a sedan. Instead of slowing down, US citizen Tejbir Singh Grewal nearly ran over the constable.

On the directions of his seniors, Narveer took a lift from a motorist and followed the car. The police said that Mr Grewal parked his car in the middle of the road and allegedly beat the former.

 

The constable alleged that the accused abused him and also tried to tear his uniform. The accused allegedly also threatened the constable, saying he had high-profile contacts and would get him suspended. Mr Grewal was taken to RK Puram police station and arrested.
