The ambulance driver told him that the bridge that connected the village was meant for light-vehicles and the ambulance comes under the heavy category. He urged the leader to arrange for a mini bus which is a light-vehicle. To this suggestion, the PDP leader got infuriated and started beating the driver ruthlessly. He cursed him for not obeying his words and dared him for giving dictations.
The police were reluctant to file a complaint against the “influential politician of the ruling party” initially, but owing to the public resentment, they had to finally give in and file a case. The local people complained before the Kangan police that the accused politician was a “habitual offender who keeps abusing people left right and center”, they even called him Kakar Khan of Kangan and were dismayed on the police’s initial reaction of letting him go Scot free.
