The worst and most painful part of the video is where the speeding SUV simply thrashed the cop, destroyed and damaged the barricades, and dragged him ahead. The force was so high that the police simply tossed a few metre high in the air. The constable was on duty and was in conversation with the driver of another car. At this moment, the SUV came from backward and hit him.

The CCTV footage going viral on several social media platforms also showed how the speeding SUV not only hit the constable near the barricade but also hit the car standing over there from the right side. From the impact of the sudden major force, that car shifted to the left side. There were a few people sitting inside that vehicle.
