The SUV, a Mahindra Thar, which was used during the alleged crime near Morna police outpost on June 8 was seized by police.

A police spokesperson said, "A police sub-inspector and a head constable were standing near the police post when the young men in the SUV arrived there and asked the duo for directions to a location. When the police personnel said they were unaware of it, the accused hurled expletives at them and hit them with their car, leading to injuries to both the personnel and fled the scene."  

Following the attack on the sub-inspector and the head constable, a case was registered at Sector 49 police station on Friday, he added.
