Mumbai: Three men in inebriated state ‘kidnapped’ an on-duty traffic policeman and took him on a “joyride” before being arrested, police said on Wednesday.

The incident, however, happened on Tuesday when the men from Thane halted their vehicle in the middle of a road in the busy Chheda Nagar locality of Chembur in eastern Mumbai. According to IANS report, all were “heavily drunk” the kidnapped policeman said.

 

Narrating the incident, police constable Vikas Munde said, “He found a dark grey Honda City parked in the middle of the road blocking traffic movement during rush hour and knocked on the windows. One of the youngsters rolled down the windows and Munde saw he was drunk, the car reeked of liquor and empty beer bottles were lying around.”

Munde ordered the driver to park the vehicle properly by the side of the road, but the other occupants stepped out and in a drunken rage, started arguing with him. “I asked the driver to park the vehicle. They soon started abusing and beating me. They pounced on me and pushed me inside their car, and before I knew, they were speeding off at high speed,” Munde added.

 

A team of policemen from Vikhroli Traffic Police chased down the vehicle. They managed to intercept it nearly three kilometres away near the Eastern Express Highway in Ghatkopar. Police confiscated the vehicle and took two of them into custody, as the third managed to slip away.
