According to police, Ms Chaudhary was under the influence of alcohol when she drove her hatchback mindlessly from Kutchery to Boundary Road, hitting two other cars and as many motorcycles on Wednesday.

They said when Ms Chaudhary was taken to the Lalkurti police station, she misbehaved there as well alleging that the police inspector was acting on orders from the BJP.

Chairman of the Bar Association Praveen Kumar said several complaints about Ms Chaudhary's behaviour were received in the past as well.

On October 20, Ms Chaudhary had filed a complaint against BJP councillor Manish Chaudhary alleging that he had thrashed her and her police sub-inspector friend at a restaurant the previous day.

Manish Chaudhary was arrested on October 20, the police said.

Circle Officer at Daurala Pankaj Kumar Singh had said the trigger for the October 19 incident was the woman expressing displeasure over not getting their order on time.

She allegedly threw away the food when it was finally served.

Ms Chaudhary had alleged that she was harassed and beaten up by the BJP councillor, police had said.
