A 24-year-old psychiatrist was booked for rash-driving by Begumpet police after her car bumped into bikers on busy Begumpet road on Thursday. She created a ruckus on the road, even as the traffic police tried to control the situation, causing huge traffic jam on the entire stretch during morning rush hours.
The woman, identified as city-based psychiatrist Lubna Shazore Mirza, was allegedly speeding and cutting lanes, when she almost bumped her vehicle into a motorist.
“She just missed the scooter, whose driver had not noticed her car. She then continued to zig-zag between the lanes, causing trouble for other commuters as well,” a biker told Deccan Chronicle.
In the video, her car appears to bump into one of the bikers, who stops and challenges about the way she was driving. Unable to come to terms, the woman overtakes the biker and compels him to stop a few metres away and starts a heated argument with the biker. Even as the traffic cops present on occasion try to stop her, she abuses and attacks the biker. This incident took place during morning rush hour between the Chikoti garden and Greenlands at Begumpet.
While the motorist did not lodge a complaint, the Inspector who was also an eye-witness filed a complaint, following which a case was booked against Lubna for rash driving and creating a nuisance.
