An airhostess who ran into an auto rickshaw while driving her car in an inebriated condition was arrested by Bangur Nagar police yesterday.
The incident took place in the Chincholi Bunder area. Lima Lulla, who is an employee of a private airline, also allegedly assaulted the cops who intervened to resolve the matter.
High and abusive: When a policewoman tried to pacify the air hostess,
she allegedly lashed out at her.
"The airhostess was driving her car rashly on the busy Chincholi Bunder Road when she allegedly hit an auto rickshaw. Instead of apologising, she verbally abused the rickshaw driver, and kicked up a commotion on the road," said RTO police inspector Muley, one of the traffic cops who reached the spot.
A police officer from Bangur Nagar said, "While the girl was quarrelling with the rickshaw driver, a beat police marshal saw her and tried to intervene. But she retaliated by abusing the policeman. To control the situation, the marshal called a female police officer to the spot, but Lima abused her as well."
Lima was accompanied by two male friends, one of whom was her boyfriend Rakhil Shaswat.
Shaswat and Lima were arrested on charges of drunken driving and abusing cops on duty.
There was a third person in the car, but he fled before the cops hauled them up. The arrested will be produced at court today.
