A woman and a man misbehaved and manhandled a traffic police cop after being stopped for not wearing a helmet in Delhi's Mayapuri, on Tuesday evening.

According to the police, the two were heavily drunk during the incident.

A case has been registered against them on the complaint of the traffic police personnel.

In the video of the incident, which has since gone viral, the man and the woman can be seen riding a two-wheeler without wearing a helmet.

As soon as a traffic constable stops them the lady jumps from the pillion and starts arguing with the police constable, constantly pushing the cop backward to get him out of way of the vehicle. When the constable takes out the key of the two-wheeler to stop them from running, the lady hits the cop with her mobile and snatches back the key, hitting his hand with her mobile.

The woman then gets back to her scooty and starts shouting that her brother has died and she has to rush somewhere. "Please let us go. There has been a death", she can be heard shouting in the video.

All this while, her male companion keeps on sitting over the vehicle, asking the cops to let them go. He also attempts to move forward the vehicle but is stopped by another bike that blocks their path.

All through the commotion the police maintain their composure and can be heard asking the two to park their vehicle aside and let the law take its course.

The drama which unfolded on the middle of a road also led to a jam-like situation as a large number of onlookers gathered around to watch the argument.

Later, in the evening, the two riders identified as Anil Pandey and pillion rider Madhuri were arrested.
