According to the information, a young woman in her mid-20s, was sitting in her white car with her seven-month-old child when a towing van suddenly picked up and started towing it away.
The woman begged and pleaded the Traffic Police personnel to stop the towing with towing officer, a traffic policeman believed to be named Shashank Rane, who was not wearing his name badge while on duty, which is against the rules of Maharashtra Police.
She also flashed her medical prescription from window and told the videographer that she was sick and was breastfeeding her hungry child, which was visible as car was being towed away mercilessly.
Despite the desperate pleas by her to Traffic cop to stop towing as something untoward could happen to both woman and child, he appeared unconcerned and continued speaking on his mobile phone.
