A woman allegedly assaulted a policeman in Salt Lake, Kolkata on Wednesday when her car was stopped for defying the nationwide lockdown imposed in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, officials said.
The woman, in her early 20s, has been arrested for violating the restrictions as well as assaulting a public servant on duty, a senior officer of the Bidhannagar City. A man accompanying her in the vehicle and the driver were also arrested for violating the total safety restrictions, he added.
The vehicle was coming from the CA Block side when it was stopped by our duty officers. When they questioned those inside the car on where they were heading, the accused woman got down and rushed towards a policeman and tried to bite him, he added.

The woman and her friend came to Salt Lake from Ballygunge and claimed they were going to get medicines but failed to show any prescription, the officer said. He quoted,
We never spoke to the woman but she came out of the vehicle and attacked one of our officers.
According to a police officer, the woman even drew blood from an old wound she had and smeared it across the police officer’s shirt, threatening to frame him for injuring her.
In the video, blood can be seen on the police officer’s uniform and the woman can be heard screaming that there is no one to take of her care as she lives alone.

Just reverse the Gender :- It would have turned into Misogyny
Simrandeep Singh demanded urgent need for Gender Neutral Laws,
This is not at all acceptable.. Strict action must be taken against that girl.. How come cops just allowed her to go away like this..She must be put in remand till the time she don’t apologise.Thr must be penalty to be paid by everyone be it girl or a boy 2 insult public servants
Such a shameful act. This woman has the audacity of then bad mouthing (sala) policeman doing his duty. She blatantly broke rules (even if she had geneuiene emergency) she does not have a right to spit on policeman. Lets c what actions are taken to give citizens confidence on law
This woman has brought disgrace to the uniform and to the man donning it. These are tough times, and this lady is disgusting. She should not go unpunished.
