Last year in Nov, a woman was caught on camera threatening on-duty traffic policeman in Karachi after she was stopped by him over traffic rules violation. The woman was stopped by the traffic personnel in Karachi’s area of Khayaban-e-Shahbaz of DHA after she violated a signal rule.

In a viral video, the woman was heard threatening, misbehaving and using foul language against the policeman, who asked to show her license or the CNIC over traffic rules violations.
