After inquiries, it emerged that the man driving the vehicle is a junior administrative official in the Uttar Pradesh government and the one holding on to the car’s bonnet because his life depended on it was a protester.
It so happened that a group of villagers went to block development officer Pankaj Kumar Gautam’s office demanding the second installment of funds for construction of toilets in the village.
As they waited there, protests broke out outside his office. Hours went by and no one attended to them.
It is when officer Gautam finally came out of his office, he decided to head straight for the car instead of acknowledging or addressing the needs of the protesting villagers.
This made the group further irritated and the goup followed him till the vehicle.
The officer lost no time and quickly got in and turned on
At this point, a few of the protestors blocked the car’s way as they were tired of waiting in the heat all day.
At this point, an irate villager Brij Pal, jumped on to the bonnet of the official’s car.
This also angered the official who suddenly pressed the accelerator.
So angry was Pankaj Kumar Gautam with Brij Pal for jumping on his car that he decided not to stop.
The officer is said to have driven the vehicle for four kilometres while Brij Pal held on.
When Brij Pal finally got a chance to get off four kilometres later, he warned the official and decided that he will not let the Block Development Officer get away with this serious offence.>
