A Navi Mumbai resident was arrested Saturday for allegedly injuring a traffic police constable on duty while trying to avoid paying penalty for jumping a signal.
The constable sustained minor head injuries.
Police said Rishi Mehta (25), employee of a private bank, was going to his Navi Mumbai residence when he jumped the Powai Garden signal. Constable Sandip Sukale (42) of Sakinaka traffic post ordered him to stop.
"Mehta slowed down, but as Sukale approached, he sped away. As a result, Sukale fell. Another constable, Vijay Palve, chased and stopped Mehta 2 km ahead," said senior inspector V Shinde.
Mehta tried the same tactic again. He suddenly reversed but was stopped and pulled out of his car. He was later arrested and charged with deterring a public servant from discharging his duty.
He was granted bail Sunday, police said.
