Drunk Iranian women bite cop, journalist in Bangalore
Friday, 19th February 2010
Two Iranian women, who were driving when drunk, allegedly did a Mike Tyson on a traffic sub-inspector and a journalist who sustained severe bite injuries as a routine drunken-driving check on Cubbon Road on Wednesday night went awry, causing a traffic jam.
The incident has raised questions on whether female constables should be appointed to check women drivers for drunken driving.
The two have been booked under various Indian Penal Code sections, and fear more severe punishment in Iran if sent back. Shivajinagar traffic sub-inspector Rao Ganesh J and the journalist were given anti-rabies injections due to the bites.
