2 Saudi youths held for abusing cops

The city police arrested two drunk Saudi Arabian nationals for creating a ruckus and abusing and obstructing police officers from discharging their duty on Saturday night.

The arrested have been identified as Amar Ali Salam (19) and Hussain Salah Mohammed (19). After receiving information that a couple of foreigners were quarrelling in front of a mobile showroom on Residency Road, the Ashoknagar police rushed to the spot. One of the constables started recording the scuffle on his mobile phone.

The two youths then tried to flee but the police caught them with the help of a few passersby and bundled them to the station.

During questioning, the police learnt that both the men were in an inebriated state and Salam told the police, “I am a Saudi. Your bloody Indian law cannot do anything with me. I will teach you Indian police a lesson,” and started abusing the police.

Sub-inspector Dhananjay filed a complaint against the duo, who were produced before a magistrate and remanded in judicial custody.
