Chahatt Khanna Road Rage: "If The Police Had Come 5 Minutes Later, I Dunno If I Would've Been Alive"
Two hours back, we brought you the SHOCKING story of the popular TV star Chahatt Khanna being attacked on the road by 14 drunk men. We called her to ask if she could tell us all about it. The younger sister of Sakshi Tanwar in Bade Acche Lagte Hain was frank and forthcoming. 

"Last evening around 7 pm, I was travelling in my car with my kids, maid and staff and suddenly, a car banged my car from behind. It happened at S V Road, Malad. My driver braked and we were all thrown forward. I looked behind and saw 6 burly men getting down from the car. 4 bikes carrying 8 more men were right with the car, one on either side. So, 14 men in all.

And those 14 had within no time, surrounded my car. They recognised me and aggravated their aggression. They started banging the door, abusing us no end. Soon, 25-50 people had gathered a few metres away from this hooliganism. And mind you, most of them were seeing the tamasha as mere spectators. My driver got sh** scared. Why I am saying most of them is because then I saw few Muslim uncles coming forward and telling me to go away from there ASAP and they were braving it out in front of those hooligans. But my driver had started shi**ing bricks by now, He just froze, he couldn't dodge and veer the car forward.

My kids were crying all the time. It was a ferocious attack. They then forced my driver to get down somehow and started beating him up. The next thing I knew was that the back glass of my car had also been smashed. Soon, they were on the bonnet of my car and even on the roof, dancing and singing. It had now gone wild.

I yelled at my driver to show some courage and he just about managed to take it out from that mess. But the ordeal was not over, A few metres down the road, I realised those 14 men had started following us. And they surrounded the car, once again- and started banging the door. At this point, it was great to see that the Muslim uncles had also followed us. This time though the miscreants had surrounded equally strongly- and I told my driver to yet take it ahead, even if it amounts to the car hitting one of them. Self-defence toh karna hi tha, There was no other option. And yes, I saw the Muslim uncles giving them an earful.

I dialled 100 but hardly had I gone ahead a few buildings, the hooligans returned to repeat the heinous act again. At this point I decided to get down and confront them. I knew it could lead to anything but again, I had no other option. I knew they were not going to stop. They were all sloshed with bhaang. Why are no checks possible to detect bhaang? Anyway, I took my chappals and threatened them. Worse still, 4 of them started getting physical with me. I decided to call the local MLA, but at this very juncture the cops arrived. Had they come 5 minutes later, I don't know if I would have been alive. Hats off to the police and the present BJP government for this under which we have such an efficient system.

And wait till you hear this! One of them immediately ran inside a nearby temple and the other to a paani-puri stall as if they were normal people on the road. However, I identified them and handed them to the cops. I was asked if I was interested in filing an official complaint, but I just wanted my kids to reach home safely and so I chose to go home instead. I don't think they will forget this incident throughout their lives.

Ironically, my bodyguard had gone on a break only 2 months ago and not come back. I think I will appoint one immediately and also start carrying Pepper Fry, stunt gun and a weapon. Also, I am applying for dark glasses in my car.

But you know what! All the men who were harassing me were Hindus. Only the Muslims came forward to help. I don't want to sound a communist, but what are we doing in our society today? It does not matter whether you are a Hindu or Muslim, your behaviour is governed by your upbringing."
