Scared of Someone With Knife Behind, She Jumped Off a Running Auto to Save Her Life

The Logical Indian

July 30th, 2015

It happened yesterday near Jayadeva Circle. I was heading in an Auto towards BTM, while passing the under bridge it felt like someone was behind the back seat of the auto. Light from oncoming vehicles made a metallic kind of flash behind me which made me sure that someone is ducking in the rear space behind the seat and he is holding something in his hand. I tried my best not to make any quick movements so that I can come up with something to help me escape. At the left turn opposite to Gopalan Mall traffic was moving slow because of rush hour and heavy rain. I took the opportunity to jump out of the auto and hit a car coming from behind as he wouldn’t be suspecting me to. This made people go Honking and grabbed enough attention to the scene. The car was at a minimal speed so I was not hurt. There was a Traffic Police Officer over there who came running as well. I pointed towards the auto which was still stuck in traffic. The policeman took the auto driver out and when I told him he checked behind the back seat and there was a boy holding a knife in his hand. I was startled with fear. He started hitting both of them and then another policeman over there took me to a different auto, checked it first and then asked me to go in it. I was scared and said I’ll walk but he convinced me that I was safe. I then came home.

I am still amazed and scared at the same time. I did not get a chance to thank them at the very moment. So, here is a Big THANK YOU! Bengaluru Traffic Police
