A head constable, posted at the PCR unit of Delhi police, was allegedly stabbed by a drunken man who was creating nuisance with his friends in southeast Delhi's Molarband area, police said on Thursday, adding that five persons were arrested in connection with the incident.
The incident was reported on the intervening night of November 1 and 2 when head constable Sanjay Meena and constable Tara Chand had gone to Molarband's Mohan Baba Nagar following a PCR call regarding a quarrel, police said.
When the PCR vehicle reached there, they found a car parked near Cosmos School with a few men sitting inside. Meena got off the vehicle and asked them if anyone had made a PCR call. One of them got out of the car and allegedly told Meena, "I am Amit Pali, a baddie of the area."
Pali's accomplices joined him and allegedly started abusing and even roughing up Meena. Meanwhile, Tara Chand too joined Meena and was beaten up by the men.
One of the men allegedly took out a knife and stabbed Meena in the stomach and thigh.
All of them tried to flee from the spot but Pali was apprehended by the two policemen. The cops alerted Badarpur police station and more personnel arrived at the spot.
Meena was rushed to a hospital where he was still undergoing treatment. Police said he was out of danger and will be discharged from the hospital soon. Pali told the police about his other accomplices -- Jitu, Aadil, Atul and Ravi, police said, adding that it was Jitu who had stabbed Meena. All the arrested men had criminal records, police said.
