A day after a judge's husband and daughter were booked for assaulting a traffic constable, the 20-year-old girl yesterday filed a cross complaint against the policeman, alleging that he molested and manhandled her and her father.

On Wednesday, the father and daughter were riding their bike in the wrong direction on a one-way road. They were stopped by two constables deployed at Swatantrata Chowk on Karve Road. The additional sessions judge's husband refused to pay the fine, claiming that he was new to the city and, therefore, unaware of the one-way restrictions. This resulted in a heated argument, and according to the police, "the behaviour of the judge's husband was rude and resulted in his motorcycle injuring the constable".

A video clip of the incident has since gone viral, showing the man allegedly slapping the traffic constable several times. "His daughter, too, joined in the assault," said a police officer. Locals tried to stop the assault, but the father did not relent.

The Deccan Gymkhana police registered a case of manhandling, assaulting and abusing against the duo on Thursday. On Friday, the daughter filed a criminal complaint against the cop at the same police station. In her complaint, the judge's daughter claimed that her father had been abused and manhandled, and that she was pushed and the traffic cop ran over her leg with his bike.
