'DSS leader' threatens SI

The incident occurred near BHEL on Mysore Road when the accused, Venkatesh, drove his two-wheeler into a ‘no entry’ zone. The Byatarayanapura traffic police station sub inspector, Harish Babu, who was on duty, stopped Venkatesh and pointed out his mistake, showing the ‘no entry’ signboard. Without giving any answer, Venkatesh allegedly used abusive language and claimed that he was a DSS leader and no one could take any action against him.
Venkatesh refused to disclose his name and other details, and did not allow the SI to check the documents of the two-wheeler. The SI was forced to take him to the station when Venkatesh used vulgar words and said that he was not afraid of anybody, said police sources.
He spoke to some of his men, who rushed to the police station and demanded action against the SI. The police higherups held an emergency meeting and clarified that Venkatesh erred twice, by violating a traffic norm and obstructed a cop from discharging his duties. Later, a notice was issued to pay penalty after Venkatesh apologised, added the police.
The incident partially affected the traffic flow.
