Here's the video of the incident.

Non-compliance of traffic laws has been a persistent problem in Andhra Pradesh.

Traffic policemen struggle to keep track of the car owners due to a inadequate database and hence regularly have to put their life on stake. In one such incident, a constable died after being run over by a truck driver last year and things don't seem to have improved since then.
