New Delhi: A man, allegedly to escape a paper check by the traffic cops dragged a constable for two kilometers - the hood of his vehicle. The constable was trying to stop the accused by jumping atop his car's bonnet. The video of the incident, which took place in November last year, went viral on social media on Sunday.

The victim constable's name is Sunil. The incident happened in Nangloi area of outer Delhi.

According to the sources in Delhi traffic police, the cops were checking papers of vehicles at Nangloi Chowk when accused's car came from another side. The policemen indicated that he should stop but after slowing the speed of his car the man tried to escape. Then in a bid to stop the motorist, Sunil jumped atop the bonnet of his car.

Shockingly, instead of stopping the vehicle, the accused accelerated and dragged the cop to about two kilometres. The co-passenger in the car recorded the whole incident on his mobile. After so many requests, the accused gave a chance to Sunil to get down and then he fled away.

Now, after about two months the clip went viral on social media, which prompted the police department to initiate a probe in the matter.
