Karmveer stopped the vehicle and questioned the driver, following which an argument broke out between the two over it. The inspector then threatened to challan him to which the driver replied that he was the DCP’s operator.

Karmveer alleged that after the incident, the SHO called him at the Police Station at 11 pm where DCP Madhur Varma was present. According to the Traffic Inspector, Verma first hurled abuses at him and even beat him up when he asked the DCP not to abuse. Thereafter, the inspector lodged a complaint against the DCP in the police station and with the Delhi Police Commissioner, Governor and Prime Minister’s office.
