Default Mysore: Hit-and-run - Girl Gives Hot Chase, Nabs Fleeing Car Owner

In an exemplary bravery, a girl driving a car chased another car which had hit her's and managed to nab the driver who tried to flee after a chase of nearly two hours, here last night.



An Indica car driven by N. Munaf of Kerala coming from Bamboo Bazar side through the railway under-bridge and Yadavagiri allegedly hit the Santro car(driven by the Girl) near the Akashavani Circle and proceded towards petrol bunk on KRS Road in V.V. Mohalla, where both of them stopped their cars.

After alighting from the car near the Petrol Bunk, Munaf and a girl accompanying him, started abusing Shruti finding fault with her.Shruti started crying unable to bear the humiliation. She asked them to accompany her to the Police Station nearby where the Police will decide who is at fault.Refusing to come to the Police Station, Munaf and the girl abused her again and sped away in their car towards Hunsur Road.

"It is at this juncture that I mustered courage. With a resolve to teach them a lesson, I started chasing them," she said.Munaf drove towards Kala-mandira, Railway Gate, RTO Circle, JLB Road and tried to dodge Shruti. She, however, kept the track. He went round several roads and bylanes with Shruti chasing him.Finally, the fleeing Munaf again took to JLB Road, reached Nanjumalige and took deviation towards Narayana Sastry Road where Shruti's car waylaid the fleeing car at Siddappa Square at around 11.30 pm.All along the chase, Shruti spoke to many of her friends who encouraged her not to allow the 'fellow' to escape.

Alighting from her car, Shruti started to take Munaf to task. He also came out and entered into a wordy duel.On witnessing the commotion, passersby gathered at the spot. As Shruti narrated this incident, the enraged mob thrashed Munaf for harassing a girl.A Traffic Police on duty nearby rushed to the spot and rescued Munaf. He called the V.V. Puram Traffic Station. Sub-Inspector Venkateshaiah and staff rushed to the spot and took both of them to the Station.Venkateshaiah registered a case against Munaf and seized his car. The Police escorted Shruti to her house in her car.

That was Superb!

Such morons (who hit & then abuse & then run) should be taught such a harsh lesson!

Two observations.

1. The girl could have simply noted down the number of the Indica and registered a complaint of hit and run with the police. Would have worked just as well, with no risky car chase in a crowded city and no risk of getting hurt by the thug(s).

2. In the city the girl should not have needed two hours for her Santro to catch up with an Indica.

Do you think that really works??? let me assure you the cops do nothing about it. For all you know the car would have fled back to kerala where finding it would have been next to impossible. The girl did the right thing. It would have been better if she had a hockey stick with her in the car.

Mysore is not as small as you think. The indica driver would have probably been more reckless than the girl. And the Santro is not that fast a car to catch up so easily to any car. I could have given a longer chase with my alto to a santro.

Besides the santro probably didn't have the correct tyre pressure of 35psi to aid in the high speed handling during the chase. this could have resulted in lower speeds.

no offence meant rks.

ROTFLMAO!!!

But seriously, anyone who dials in 35 psi to aid in "high speed handling" is suicidal.

Are you serious? What if she had crashed into some other car or into some barrier or killed some pedestrians, etc.? Would you still be saying that a car chase in a crowded city is advisable? This is real life, not a movie. Plus the guy could easily be a thug, and lead her into his den and hurt her seriously with fellow thugs.

My assessment is that the Santro (especially if it is a Xing) will catch up very quickly with an Indica in any city. But you are entitled to your opinion. I don't want to launch into a detailed explanation because that would be off-topic here.

No offence taken.
@v1p3r, I am following Bridgestone India's official advice. And the advice given by the Carbibles website owner (Chris Longhurst) who has a formula for the safe maximum tyre pressure -- Maximum trye pressure rating minus 10 %. So if the tyre is rated for 40 psi, the safe top pressure you can run is 36 psi. I have been running 33-35 psi for the last 35000 kms. With a digital gauge I am now keeping pressures exactly at 35 psi for highway runs. It works for me. Just as the experts predict.

@Rudra Sen, I probably should not have started this topic. But anyway I don't plan to say anything more.

Which topic? Your Santro story? No, it's nice and a good read indeed.

Please continue with your discussion/comments here, sir.

No. The problem was that it was not running on Alloy Wheels. Had it been, it would have just taken 15 mins to catch the culprit.
I read somewhere by RKS sir that Alloys increase pick up and acceleration.
