Two police officers and a home guard were injured when the Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) in which they were deployed was hit by a speeding sedan, during the early hours on Tuesday, in Shahadra's Geeta Colony area.

Police arrested the two men in the sedan who were found to be driving under the influence of alcohol.

The incident took place at around 1 am, when Head Constable Vedprakash, Assistant Sub Inspector Shiv Kumar and Home Guard Constable Santlal, were on duty at an ERV, near Y Point on Pushta Road.

According to the Vedprakash, who also made a PCR call about the incident, a speeding car suddenly rammed into their vehicle spinning it around, and injuring all three of them.

"The white colour Tata Zest with registration number UP21 BD 7776, hit the ERV Gypsy, DL1CM 4326 from behind. The collision was such that the Gypsy spun around on the spot.

Taking note of the situation, the trio, despite being injured, got out of the Gypsy and rushed towards the car. They soon intercepted it and forced the driver to pull over and also made a PCR call," said Nupur Prasad, DCP Shahadra.

The driver was identified as Manish Kashyap (25), a resident of Alaknanda Colony in Moradabad, UP. With him, on the front seat was his friend Abhishek from Jagatpuri in Delhi. Both of them were nabbed and handed over to the PCR, which took the cops and the duo for medical examination.

"While the Assistant Sub Inspector and the Head Constable were discharged after treatment, Home Guard Constable Santlal was admitted to a hospital. His condition was however said to be stable, by Tuesday evening. The two accused were arrested and booked for rash driving and under other relevant IPC sections. Police are also checking the CCTV footages to ascertain the sequence of events," the officer said.
