Some people in this world are just plain crazy. Take this case for example. Last nite, i received a call from a friend about her car being taken away by the police. It was at a thana, and she wanted to know if i could get it out for her. The matter was too heated then.. and i couldnt.
Background info on friend: She has a new corolla, runs her own business, and looks rich.
Background info on incident: Near XXX shopping mall, her car scratched another car (a beat-up cultus) being driven by a aunty. The aunty got out and a war of words ensued. For the scratch, the aunty insisted that they take the matter to the police! (when i was told this.. i was like wtf?). My friend obviously disagreed, started her car, and took off.
Now comes the interesting part… the aunty actually TRACED her address from her car (even though its leased and registered in the bank’s name). Registered an ‘attempted murder’ FIR against her, citing that my friend “rammed” her car five to six times into hers, almost destroying it, and tried to kill her. (A point to note here is, even though the corolla was smashed into the other car five/six times, it only has a scratch on it). The police came and took my friends car away, and now the case has gone into the courts.
Guess what the aunty’s demands are…? Get my car completely repaired (price tag: >60k), or goto jail.
