Teenager ‘used vehicle as a weapon’ when he reversed car into PCSO
By ALY WALSH
A TEENAGE motorist has been locked up after he reversed his car, dragging a police community support officer to the ground.
Zakir Ajaib knocked Monica Bhardwaj from her feet after she became suspicious that he was smoking cannabis in his vehicle. She banged her head and suffered ligament damage to her wrist and whiplash injuries.
Sending Ajaib, 19, to a young offenders’ institution for 30 weeks, Judge John Gosling said: “This officer was doing her job when you ran her down. These injuries could have been much worse but you didn’t care.”
He said Ajaib, of Crewe Street, Derby, had literally used his vehicle as “a weapon”.
