Bareilly(UP), Sep 3: A woman police officer was dragged and beaten on the main road by her subordinates when she raised her voice against extortion of money in the name of traffic checking.

Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Kalpana Saxena received information from an Army jawan that policemen were demanding bribes from truckers near the Jat regimental centre. Rushing to the spot and sensing trouble the three constables attacked Saxena, and was succumbed to fractured hand and injuries on her head.

"I rushed to the area along with the gunner and driver in a private car to catch them red handed. When I reached the area, I saw them extorting bribes from the constables. The constables recognised me and tried to flee and crush me under their police vehicle," the 1990 batch officer of the state's Provincial Police Service said.

"I caught hold of the neck of the driver driving the vehicle and it dragged me for more than an kilometre in full public view. Finally, they threw me on the road," Saxena said.

Police said one of the accused has been arrested and two others are on hunt to nab them.

DIG N K Srivastav said all the three constables have been suspended and FIR has been lodged at the Cantt police station in this regard.
