A man and a woman who misbehaved with a traffic police personnel in Delhi's Mayapuri were arrested on Tuesday. The altercation reportedly broke out when they were stopped for not wearing a helmet on Tuesday evening. Reportedly, the duo was asked for certain documents that they were not able to provide, after which they began misbehaving with the cop.

In a video of the incident, the man and the woman can be seen riding a two-wheeler without wearing a helmet. Soon after they were stopped by the traffic constable the lady jumped from the pillion and started arguing with the police constable.

Further, when the constable took out the key of the two-wheeler to stop them from running, the lady hit the cop with her mobile and snatched back the key. The woman was also shouting at the cop and the people gathered around that her "brother had died". She said in the video, "Please let us go. There has been a death". All through the commotion the police maintained their composure and were heard asking the two to park their vehicle aside and let the law take its course.

Reports quoted police as saying that the two, Anil Pandey and Madhuri who were riding a two-wheeler, were also "heavily" drunk. A case was registered against them on the complaint filed by the personnel.

In a separate incident which also occurred in the capital on Tuesday, two persons were arrested for allegedly assaulting traffic police officials. The accused in the second case, identified as Lucky and Aakash, misbehaved with the police personnel, who tried to stop them because they were drunk. The two have been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty.
