According to the police, Himayat Ali Shah Datta alias Ali Chaudhary alias Raja Chaudhary (43) and Nagina Himayat Ali Chaudhary (35) were stopped outside the Jijamata Udyan in Byculla at 1.15 pm on Tuesday by traffic policemen who were conducting a special drive there. Cops asked the couple to step aside after they were found to be travelling without a licence and helmet.
Himayat Ali and Nagina then stepped down from the vehicle and allegedly got into an argument with a constable and Sub-Inspector Janardhan Patil of the Byculla traffic division, leaving the scooter in the middle of the road. When Patil told the accused to move their scooter as it was blocking traffic, they allegedly shoved him and pulled the collar of his uniform and ripped his badge. He was not injured.
The accused were taken to the Byculla police station. The accused are social workers living in Trombay, the police said. "They have been charged under sections 34 (criminal act done by several persons in furtherance of a common intention), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 353 (Assaulting or using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty), 503 (criminal intimidation) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) of the IPC. The couple will be produced before the Mazgaon Court on Wednesday," said Police Sub-Inspector Amar Dhenge of the Byculla police station.
Cop, woman hurt as car hits them, driver held
A constable attached with the Mahim police and a pedestrian were injured after they were allegedly knocked down by a speeding car on Monday night. Police have arrested the driver, a 20-year-old man. He was being taught to drive by his elder brother.
Constable Dnyaneshwarrao Shinde (49) was on his way home after visiting the Raheja Hospital in Mahim, police said. Shinde had been on sick leave for some days, and had gone to collect his medical reports before rejoining work.
"Shinde was walking by the police colony in Mahim when an Indica Vista him him as well as a woman, Bhakti Tandel (35)," said an officer.
The Vista stopped a few meters ahead and the driver, Nagendra Pujari, helped other eyewitnesses to Raheja hospital, where both Shinde and Tandel were admitted. Both of them suffered fractured ankles. Shinde was later shifted to the Bombay Hospital. "The car is a tourist vehicle and is driven by Nagendra's elder brother Dulappa. He was also in the car at the time, and was teaching Nagendra how to drive when the accident occurred. Nagendra claims that he accidentally pressed the accelerator instead of the brake, resulting in the accident," the officer added.
