B'lore: Drunken Iranian women 'assault' cop
Headlines Today Bureau
Bangalore, February 19, 2010

Two Iranian women went on a drinking spree in Bangalore and allegedly beat up a policeman when stopped at a checkpost.

The two students - 26-year-old Fatima and 29-year-old Azra - have been sent to judicial custody till Saturday. Fatima, an engineering graduate is aspiring to join an MBA course while Azra is pursuing her BSc.

The drama unfolded close to midnight on Wednesday. Fatima and Azra were stopped on Cubbon Road by the police for a routine check against drunken driving. But the women refused to cooperate during the breath-analyser test.

Fatima did not have her license either. When sub-inspector Ganesh Rao took the other documents away, Azra tried to snatch the papers. When Rao told her to behave, she allegedly started assaulting him and bit his hand.

Recounting the assault, Rao said: "They didn't have a driving licence or RC, so I kept the tax card and asked them to reclaim it by paying the fine tomorrow. One of the women came out of the car, assaulted me on the chest, took the tax card from my mobike and tried to drive away."

"When I stopped the car using a barricade, the woman attacked me again on the chest, kicked and bit me in the hand," he said.

Blood tests revealed that the alcohol level in Fatima's blood was 59 milligrams. Azra's was even higher at 83 milligrams. The permissible level is 30 milligrams.

The two women were taken into custody. But the drama wasn't over yet. At the police station, Fatima allegedly attacked a mediaperson and threw a chair against the wall.

"We are registering a case of assault on a public servant. We will investigate and take action," said B. Chandrashekhar, DCP of Bangalore.

Meanwhile, the Iranian embassy has taken note of its two nationals being caught on charges of drunken driving. The embassy said it has taken serious note of the incident and was looking into the matter. The Iranian consular officer from Hyderabad would be going to Bangalore to follow up the case. The embassy said it will respect the Indian laws.

Does they do same/like this in their own country ? Ahhhh taking advantage of freedoms not enjoyed in Iran
