Chandigarh, May 20

Video has gone viral showing an SUV driver, claiming to be a 'judicial officer' while arguing with the traffic police in Chandigarh over violation of law at a roundabout.

The video captured the moment when police signalled the driver to stop, but he moved the vehicle ahead and stopped it improperly. The driver was questioned about a cloth hanging in front of the number plate, obscuring the vehicle’s number.

This led to an argument where the driver insisted he was a 'judicial officer'. He also made the police speak with a higher-ranking officer on his phone.

However, when asked to present his driving licence, the SUV driver sped away from the scene.

Meanwhile, the police have booked the SUV driver identified as Prakash Singh under Sections 170 (personating a public servant), 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public duties) and 419 (cheating by personation) of Indian Penal Code at Sector 49 police station.

The accused has also been issued a challan for traffic violations including red light signal and tampering of number plate.

Police said that the vehicle will be seized.
