Driver drags traffic policeman on car bonnet after being caught illegally parking

A man in eastern India drove off with a traffic policeman on the bonnet of his vehicle after being caught and confronted after illegally parking.

According to traffic officer Prashanta Saikia, the incident took place at the Jalukbari flyover in Guwahati, Assam state on February 27 and video shows the officer trapped on the moving car's hood for some distance, while passengers shout to stop the car.

Eventually the car slows and the driver allows the policeman to get off the car bonnet safely, before trying to drive away without the unintended passenger.

The car had stopped in a No Parking Zone and the driver had parked his vehicle there. When the traffic policeman asked him to move, he quickly attempted to escape and the incident unfolded.

The driver of the vehicle has been arrested and forwarded to the court and the vehicle has been seized.
