Near the Signature Tower Chowk of the city, the man was stopped by traffic cops for violating traffic rules.

One officer asked him to produce documents but the driver showed reluctance. He was asked to step out of the car and he then dialed someone from his phone.

He asked the cops to talk to someone but they refused and continued with their job.

Fleeing away

Man tries to run away, cop fails to stop him

The cop tells the man they weren't his enemies and were standing there for the safety of citizens.

When the man persists and asks them to speak to their 'senior' the cops tell him they belong to a different department.

Soon the man gets into the car, and one cop realizes he is fleeing. He attempted to stop him and the man dragged the officer on his car's bonnet.

Notably, this is not the first incident when traffic cops faced danger. In November, a truck driver hit and dragged a policeman for some distance at Rao Tula Ram Marg in southwest Delhi, after refusing to slow down. The cop lost his life.

In April, a cop jumped on a car's bonnet to stop the speeding driver and hurt his hand in Delhi.

Opinion

On related note, sense of entitlement runs high in Gurugram

On Wednesday, just outside NewsBytes office in Sushant Lok Phase 1, a Minocha family first punctured two tires of a car which was parked 20 meters away from their house, then the matriarch of the family got into a verbal spat with the car-owner.

Meanwhile, her son threatened the owner with his 'contacts'. The son is reportedly a member of the welfare society.

Where does this sense of entitlement stem from?
