'Intoxicated' Russian Diplomat Punches Delhi Cop; Rams Cars Into Bike

New Delhi; Dec.9: In a case of road rage, a diplomat from the Russian embassy, who was severely intoxicated, rammed into a police barricade in Moti Bagh here and also rear-ended a motorbike, injuring two.

The incident took place at about 1:30 am in Delhi's Moti Bagh, ANI news agency reported. 

The Russian diplomat, whom some reports identified as first secretary in the Russian Embassy Dmitry Kryukov, rear-ended his car into a bike and then slammed it into a police barricade.

When he was stopped by the police, the diplomat refused to come out of the car and allegedly punched and abused a constable Naib Singh on duty.

One of the bikers was taken to the hospital with injuries, while the Russian diplomat himself was seen bleeding from his nose. 

"He was so intoxicated that he could not control the car and he was practically unconscious. He was driving really fast and was unable to stop. His car is so badly damaged and this is proof of how hard he rammed into the police barricade. When the police tried to get him out of the car, he refused to do so," one of the bikers told ANI.

The Delhi Police, which does not have powers to arrest the Russian embassy official since he enjoys diplomatic immunity, will submit a report to the Home Ministry on the case.
