The road is in a poor condition and our vehicle was moving at a slow pace. Luckily, the driver applied the handbrake and I, along with him, got out,” said Sandhu.“The truck dragged my SUV for a few metres. The truck driver tried to flee, but passersby caught him. He did not have a registration certificate,” he said.Jagdeep alleged, “Barkandi recently came to my native village Fattanwala, where he told people that he would teach me a lesson.
