A 19-year-old youth rammed his bike into a police barricade eventually injuring a cop, who was stationed near Mulund check naka. The second year engineering student was riding his bike without wearing a helmet and thus was asked to stop for a routine check-up at a nakabandi, which is being conducted jointly by the traffic police and the Mulund police.
