Mid Day - - CITY - SAMI­UL­LAH KHAN sami­ul­lah.khan@mid-day.com

AN un­ruly biker jumped a traf­fic sig­nal in Borivli West on Wed­nes­day night and griev­ously in­jured a traf­fic po­lice con­sta­ble.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice sources, the in­jured con­sta­ble, iden­ti­fied as Milind Hi­wale, 32, from the Borivli traf­fic di­vi­sion, was reg­u­lat­ing traf­fic at the Don Bosco junc­tion in Borivli around 8.15 pm on Wed­nes­day.

Just then, the biker, iden­ti­fied as Ak­shay Ajay Parmar, 20, jumped the sig­nal. Hi­wale sig­nalled him to stop, but Parmar drove his mo­tor­cy­cle to­wards Hi­wale and ran him over, leav­ing him with head, nose and leg in­juries.

He then tried to flee from the spot, but Hi­wale’s col­league caught him and handed him to the Borivli po­lice.

Mean­while, Hi­wale was rushed to Sailee Hos­pi­tal, and ad­mit­ted to the ICU. His con­di­tion was crit­i­cal. On Thurs­day, he was moved to Life Line hos­pi­tal for fur­ther treat­ment. Hi­wale’s right an­kle has been badly dam­aged, while his nose and head, too, have se­ri­ous in­juries. Ar­rested ac­cused Parmar is a res­i­dent of Man­gal Murti co-op­er­a­tive hous­ing so­ci­ety Borivli West, and stud­ies at a Kan­di­vli-based col­lege.

He was booked un­der var­i­ous sec­tions of the In­dian Pe­nal Code and the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles Act.

“He was pro­duced be­fore a court and re­manded in ju­di­cial cus­tody,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer from Borivli po­lice sta­tion. Parmar has ap­plied for bail.
