Angry Autorickshaw smooched my Swift!

I'll repeat that the autowallahs are real m*r*ns!! Today morning this smart autowallah took a wrong track to cross the lane and rammed into my swift damaging the front right corner of the car! This happened on the highway which has road dividers and while I was taking a 'U' turn thru the passage! I had to travel the opposite way and so wanted to make a turn thru the passage. While doing this, all my attention was against the traffic flow to safely take the trun to that track. Thatz when this guy came thru the same track in wrong direction without noticing me taking the turn. Both collided as and when I started to move into the track! Idiotic thing is that the guy immediately started making all the 'hollas' against me as he gained supports from fellow autowallahs!! I had to react very badly and blasted all of them right infront of tarffic SI who came upon my call!! Later came to know that this autowallah is a "union leader"!! Now am gonna give him a life blast thru party channel!! Juz to make sure that he won't repeat it to anybody in his life time!
Worst part is that the car will be back only by sat eve as per the latest info given by the service centre!!

See the pic...
