The 29-year-old constable was on duty under the Eastern Express Highway flyover near Nitin Junction in Thane. She, reportedly, gestured Kalgude to stop his vehicle but he tried to dodge her, until she came in front of the leader's SUV to stop him.

It was when the constable asked him to produce his driving licence and the vehicle's documents, Kalgude started abusing her. He then slapped and punched her so hard that her nose started bleeding, repored CNN-IBN.

Kalgude has been arrested and booked under sections 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) and 354 (molestation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena has distanced itself from the leader who took law in his hands.

Shiv Sena's youth wing Yuva Sena president and grandson of the party's founder Bal Thackeray, Aaditya Thackeray tweeted saying, "Absolutely nothing to do with the party at all, (it) doesn't endorse (the assault). Office bearer or not, doesn't endorse the shameful act."
