A couple driving back home in the early hours of Saturday in Bengaluru experienced a horrific incident when two men rode up on the wrong side, hit their car and tried to assault them.
Luckily, Kush and Ankita Jaiswal survived the horror that was captured by the dashboard camera of their car. Their nightmare began over a five-kilometer stretch between Doddakannelli and Chikkanayakanahalli in southeastern Bengaluru.
The incident occurred around 2.59 am when the couple were on their way home from Whitefield. Two men riding a motorcycle suddenly appeared on the wrong side. The car slowed down but the motorcycle hit it head-on.
The men came menacingly towards the car, banged on its door and asked the couple to get out. The couple were too scared to come out and began driving back. As the car moved back, the men started following it. The couple somehow drove back to their apartment complex in Chikkanayakanahalli, which was about four kilometers away. But just as they reached the gate, the men also rode up and blocked the car’s way.
The couple were very scared as it was evident that the group of men were trying to harm the couple. They somehow managed to chase the men away and return home. Such an experience out of the blue was very traumatic for the couple.
Based on a complaint from the couple, Bellandur police arrested the suspects under IPC sections related to intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace, criminal intimidation and causing grievous hurt by an act endangering the life or or personal safety of others. The suspects are Dhanush, 24, and Rakshit, 20. Both work in a fish shop in Bellandur.
