The Bengaluru Police on Friday arrested a woman who was seen driving her car on the road with a man hanging on the vehicle’s bonnet.
The woman, identified as Priyanka, was arrested on charges of attempt to murder, based on a complaint by S Darshan, a local businessman who she dragged.
The police have also booked her husband and his friend under IPC Sections 506, 34, 504,279 and 323.
Police said a collision occurred between Darshan’s car and Priyanka’s vehicle at Jnanabharathi Main Road on Friday morning.
According to Darshan, Priyanka came from the wrong side and kept driving the Black Nexon car despite the red signal.
When he questioned, Priyanka showed her middle finger and started driving towards Mangaluru College in Ullal. The complainant followed her car, made her stop the vehicle, and sought an apology for her action.
“One stranger came, punched me, and threatened me. The lady used vulgar words against me. The public gathered and criticised her. Police were called to the spot. After the arrival of the police, the lady refused to come to the police station and tried to get back to the car,” Darshan said.
“I sat on the bonnet of the car to prevent her from driving away. In spite of this, she started driving. I pleaded with her to stop the vehicle, telling her that if I fall down, I will die. She ignored my plea and drove the vehicle from Mangaluru College in Ullal to Ullal Road near Vidyaniketan, for about 3.5 km,” Darshan said in his complaint.
The people around who saw everything came to my rescue and made her stop the car finally, he added.
Priyanka’s husband, Pramod, also lodged a counter-complaint against Darshan and his three friends.
The police have registered an FIR against Darshan and his three friends under IPC Sections 354 B, 427, 506, 307, 341, 504, 143, 149, 323, 324 and 354.
According to Pramod, Darshan had overtaken his wife Priyanka’s car from the wrong side and blocked their way.
“It created a traffic jam and when my wife was making a turn, he scolded her and she showed her finger to him”.

“I did not get down from the vehicle and called the police control room. Darshan was banging on the driver’s window glass where my wife was. He called four to five people to the spot. I called my friend Nitesh to the spot. One of his friends punched me on my face and when my wife tried to stop him, he tore her clothes,” he said.
