The police officer signalled the Scooty rider to stop in order to check him and for the purpose of enquiry, but he tried to flee from the spot by taking a U-turn.

“However, valorous police officers on patrol instantly swung into action and started to chase him. Ultimately, the Scooty was intercepted and the rider was apprehended and overpowered by the dedicated police officer after a high-voltage chase of about 50 meters,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (north), Sagar Singh Kalsi.
