Various instances of attempted extortion through a false pretext of road rage have emerged over the past year in the city of Bengaluru and particularly in and around the region of Sarjapur. Ever since dash cams attached to cars have been capturing on record these acts of hooliganism, there has been a more proactive approach by the police in handling these cases.

Another such incident came to the forefront on November 8th. Srijan R Shetty, co-founder of Fuze Finance, a blockchain infrastructure program shared about this through his X (formerly known as Twitter) account. “On 8th November, my wife offered to drop off some other colleagues (2 females, one male) considering it was hard to get a cab from Sarjapur. Their car was chased down by a bunch of men for a few km – she was smart enough to stop only on the main road and inform the cops as soon as possible,” he stated in the post. 


While emphasising on the need for better security arrangements especially in and around Sarjapur he recollected how his wife’s wits saved the situation from going beyond redemption on that day. “The men demanded that they step out of the car – which she didn’t – for alleged damage during the chase. A few tempo drivers hit her car from the backside and joined the man in the green shirt in trying to pressurise people who couldn’t speak Kannada. None of the bystanders helped the three women and a guy in the car. If it wouldn’t have been for her wits of calling the cops and then calling us and 10 of her friends to immediately join her at her location, the incident could have taken a different turn,” he expressed.
