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.
