Speeding Congo student tears constable's uniform

Speeding Congo student tears constable's uniform
A student from Congo and her friend reportedly assaulted two police constables and tore the uniform of one of them when pulled up for speeding. The incident occurred at HBR Layout in Banaswadi, East Bengaluru, last Monday but emerged only on Friday.

Kilambo Nzeba (24) and  Kalau Mujinga (22), undergraduate students at a city college, were driving in a rash and negligent manner behind Forest Road around 4.30 pm. Beat patrolmen, Anand Shirola and Basavaraj Tonape, set out on a Cheetah motorbike in search of the students after receiving an alert from the police control room. They saw the car and tried to stop it. But  Mujinga, who was at the wheel, lost control of the automobile and crashed it into the policemen's motorbike, a senior police officer said.  

The policemen confronted the students and asked them to get off the car. The students did as told but got into an argument with the policemen. The girl roughed up Shirola and tore his uniform. The policemen alerted the Hoysala patrol team which rushed to the spot and detained the students.

The Congolese were booked for rash and negligent driving, and assaulting a public servant. A court later sent them into judicial custody.  Shirola and Tonape are recovering at  a hospital, the officer added.
