The police have identified the accused as Dinesh, 30, from Rajasthan and owns a furniture shop in the city. He was with his family when he was stopped by Constable Bheemashankar. The constable began to write a notice for violations. Enraged, Dinesh allegedly got down from the car, pulled out a baseball bat and attacked Bheemashankar, while shouting, ‘How dare you stop my car and slap a fine’.

Passers-by rushed to Bheemashankar’s aid, and took Dinesh to task for attacking a policeman on duty. However, he drove off.

Bheemashankar filed a complaint with the Bellandur police who, on Saturday, tracked Dinesh down and arrested him on charges of assaulting a government servant while on duty, criminal intimidation and also booked him for various traffic violations.
