Sultana Syed, who was reprimanded by the police after she allegedly picked up an argument with an autorickshaw driver over metre fare in Vasanth Nagar on Thursday night, will have to shell out a fine for her wild ways.

A petty case has been booked against her and she would be produced before the Eighth Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kiran Kini who will slap a fine on her.
“She will be produced before the Magistrate on Monday,” High Grounds Police Inspector Virupakshappa said.

Syed, a resident of J C Nagar, had created a scene at the Vasanthnagar traffic signal by picking up an argument with autodriver Ayub Khan alleging foul play in the metre fare.

Hiring the three-wheeler from a pub on Brigade Road at around 11:30 pm, Syed had agreed to pay 50 percent more than the metre fare. As soon as she reached Vasanthnagar, a sozzled Syed, however, started quarreling with Khan saying the metre was tampered with.

Khan reacted by demanding double the metre fare, further enraging Syed, who pounced on him and attempted to tear his shirt. She also reportedly abused him.
Khan then called on the Cheetah patrolling policemen for help. The policemen tried to pacify Syed.

A furious Syed, however, did not relent and a verbal duel ensued. Her tantrums continued even after she was taken to the police station.
The policemen called Malleswaram Traffic Police Inspector Shashikala, who managed to pacify and escorted her home.

Man attempts suicide
A man who reportedly attempted to swallow a finger ring demanding the release of his software engineer friend who was arrested for alleged dowry harassment has been booked for attempted suicide in Byappanahalli here on Saturday.
According to police, Praveen, a friend of Subramanya, a techie from Nellor district in Andhra Pradesh, barged into the police station demanding that Subramanya be released, around 7:30 pm.

He reportedly threatened the police with dire consequences if the demand was not met. When the police refused, he reportedly swallowed the ring. Subsequently, his condition worsened and he was rushed to the Chinmaya Mission Hospital. Later, he was discharged.

Subrahmanya was arrested a few days ago after his wife Aishwarya Lakshmi lodged a complaint of dowry harassment against him.
A case of attempted suicide under Section 309 of the IPC has been registered against Praveen, police added.
