Who is at fault here?
Everyone must wear a helmet while riding any two-wheeler. Secondly, the motorcyclist should’ve slowed down at the check-post instead of trying to speed away. The cop, on the other hand, should’ve noted the number of the vehicle and traced it, instead of swinging the lathi at the motorcyclist which may have caused an even serious accident and injury.
