Man dragged on car bonnet
Darshan yelled at her and asked if she could not see the signal. The woman in response showed him the middle finger and said a curse word before driving off. Darshan followed the SUV and blocked her vehicle in Ullal and asked her to apologize to him for abusing and showing the middle finger.
Meanwhile, Darshan and his friends Yeshwanth, Vinay, and his brother Sujan reached the spot and demanded the woman get out of the vehicle. Her husband Pramod assaulted Darshan and threatened him with bad consequences.
When he tried to stop her from leaving, she revved up the engine and hit him, throwing him onto the bonnet. Then she drove for about 3 kilometers.
