An police officer in Chandigarh, India, clung to the hood of a car after one motorist sped off in the middle of a traffic stop Sunday evening.
Motorist Matka Chowk drove off with traffic constable Davinder Singh still on the hood. Singh bashed in the windshield with his helmet and Chowk was forced to slow down, but the officer eventually fell from the vehicle.
Singh suffered serious injuries and was transported to the Government Multi-Specialty Hospital.
Chowk was arrested and charged with attempted murder.
According to a senior police official, this isn’t the first time a police officer has nearly been run over.
“In recent months, we have seen several incidents of policemen being dragged and hit by motorists when they were stopped for traffic violations,” the officer said.
We got in two of our best-selling Turkish imports from Landor Arms – the AR-style LND-117 shotgun and the bullpup BPX 902 – to give them a whirl on the range and see if the reliability could be paired with the affordable price.
Marlin once claimed their Model 39 as the eldest continually produced, shoulder-fired rifle of all time. Though that record ended when the Marlin brand was parted-off to Ruger, the rimfire world is anticipating a return of this classic.
