Caught on Camera: MLA thrashes lady constable at Thane in Maharashtra.
A Shiv Sena leader was caught on camera for assaulting a woman constable in Thane when she stopped him for using his mobile phone while driving. The entire incident was caught on CCTV camera in which Sena leader, Shashikant Kalgude, could be seen slapping the woman cop.
A Shiv Sena functionary has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a female traffic constable after she pulled him up for talking on the phone while driving at a busy junction in Thane on Thursday morning. While motorists and passersby stood mute as he slapped and rained punches on her, an alert advocate intervened and took the accused to police station.
Around 11am, the 29-year-old constable (name withheld), who was stationed under the Eastern Express Highway flyover at Nitin Junction, noticed Shashikant Kalgude (44) driving his SUV while chatting on his mobile phone. She signalled him to stop his car, but he ignored her and tried to drive past another vehicle. However, Kalgude was forced to apply the brakes when she came in front of his SUV.
“When the constable asked him to show his his driving licence and vehicle documents, Kalgude started abusing her. He then slapped and punched her so hard that her nose started bleeding,” said an officer from the Naupada police station.
