Here a recent incident where a VW Vento can be seen dragging a police constable in daylight.
Being safe on our roads is a pretty challenging task as there are many unruly drivers on the streets. Also, over-speeding and rash driving are the biggest problems on our roads, because of which a lot of accidents happen on daily basis, and many people lose their lives. Here’s one such incident, where a police driver has been dragged by an over speeding car for a many metres.
The incident recently happened in Nagpur, where a police constable was charging the driver for rash driving. To escape the situation, the driver started driving the car and dragged the on-duty police constable on the bonnet of the car for about half a kilometre on a fairly crowded city street. The accused here was driving a VW Vento. The driver of the sedan was identified as Akash Chavan. After dragging the policemen for 500-meters, the driver was later arrested by the police after he finally stopped the car near a college.
One can see in the video that the car has also hit a scooter. The video was recorded by a CCTV camera. It is quite disappointing to see how some Indian road users don't give two hoots about traffic laws. We request all our readers to kindly follow traffic rules because rash driving can be dangerous for you as well as for the people passing by.
Also, worth mentioning here is that last year, the local subsidiary of the German carmaker launched the Vento facelift in India, which employs some subtle cosmetic upgrades on the outside and inside. Up front, the looks of the car are almost identical to the Polo, and the only difference between both the cars is the larger boot on the Vento. Mechanically, it derives power from a 1.0-litre 3-pot gasoline mill, which is capable of shredding out 109bhp of peak power and 175 Nm of twisting force. The engine comes paired with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. It is offered at a starting price of Rs 8.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
