Police sources said the drunken man, along with another companion, tried to jump the signal in Nyapalli police limits on Friday night. When a traffic cop, identified as Ajit Kumar Dalei, asked him to stop, the miscreants abused him while one of them attacked his left hand with a bhujali. The traffic constable was rushed to a private hospital.

Nayapalli police station Inspector-in-charge Suryamani Pradhan said immediately after the incident, the miscreants fled from the spot, but left their motorcycle bearing registration number- OR-02-N-8426 behind. The vehicle has now been seized, Pradhan said.

“We are investigating the matter and will nab the miscreants soon,” the IIC said.
