Bangalore: A day after two inebriated
Iranian women students assaulted a traffic sub-inspector and a
mediaperson, police today said they were collecting evidence
relating to the incident and would produce it before the court
while filing the chargesheet.

"Investigations are on and we are collecting the
evidence. We will produce the evidence, the victim`s statement
and the medical certificate in the court," said DCP
Chandrashekhar.

Sub-inspector Ganesh, who faced the drunken fury of the
women, said the duo`s tirade and their violence enraged the
passing motorists and pedestrians to such an extent that they
wanted to set their car on fire but were prevented.

"They wanted to set the car on fire but me and my staff
prevented them from doing so. These girls have been saved
because of the police," Ganesh said.

"I gained a lot of public support because all were
watching what was happening there and how the girls bit me,
punched me and used slang," he said.

"I did not retaliate as they were women", he said.

"This should not have happened", he said. "I really have
nothing personally against these women. They have landed into
the hands of the law due to their own actions. Now law will
take its own course," he added.
