The head constable Vijendra Singh challaned the duo for defying the coronavirus lockdown and seized their bike. A war of words erupted between public representative Munshi Khan and the head constable, the video of which went viral on social media websites.
Following the brawl, the public representative, along with his supporters met Congress MLA Narendra Budania and demanded action against the police officer and his associates. All the councillors reportedly threatened to resign en masse if no action was taken against the police officers. Following his demand, the Churu SP attached the head constable to police lines on Sunday evening.
