Truck driver scuffles with police personnel

When the patrolling party of the concerned police station asked him to proceed again, the driver took a U-turn and stopped the truck at the starting point i.e. Narwal.

This time, while reducing the crowd in the area, it was seen that it is the same truck that was asked to move forward earlier. On being asked about this, the driver, instead of giving a satisfactory answer, along with his two accomplices scuffled with the police party.

Thereafter, the driver along with two associates was taken to the police station and FIR number 284 u/s 353 was registered at PS Bahu Fort.
