Drunk Russian diplomat hits biker, punches police


New Delhi: In a case of drunken driving and road rage, a severely intoxicated diplomat of the Russian embassy hit a motorbike and then rammed his vehicle into a police barricade in Moti Bagh at 1:30 am Wednesday. Two persons were critically injured in the accident.

Instead of stopping his vehicle after colliding with the bike, he tried to flee and in the process barged into the police barricade.

He allegedly roughed up the on-duty police constable and punched him.

A friend of the diplomat had to intervene to stop the scuffle. The friend had a long conversation with the police before taking the Russian diplomat away.

“He was so intoxicated that he could not control the car and he was practically unconscious. He was driving really fast and was unable to stop. His car is so badly damaged and this is proof of how hard he rammed into the police barricade. When the police tried to get him out of the car, he refused to do so,” one of the bikers said.

The biker was admitted in AIIMS. The Russian diplomat also suffered injuries on his face.

The police have contacted Russian embassy and asked them to take a legal action against the Russian diplomat.
