In what seems to be a blatant show of high-handedness, a senior excise official in Andhra was seen getting into a fight with a petrol bunk employee, after the former refused to wait in line.
According to reports, the incident happened at Yanam in East Godavari District when Kurnool Excise Department Superintendent Adinarayana visited a local petrol bunk.
In CCTV footage that has emerged, a car can be seen driving into the petrol bunk and reversing into the filling station.
A man is seen getting out of the car and telling the attendant to fill petrol in the official's car.
The attendant, who is seen filling petrol into vehicles that were standing in line, is seen asking the man to wait for his turn.
Another person is seen getting down, and speaking to the attendant, after which the official himself gets out from the back seat of the car and heads straight for the attendant.
He grabs the attendant by the neck, following which another person interferes and pushes the official away.
The official's men immediately hit the man, after which the former is seen threatening him.
Ironically, this incident happened on the same day that India banned the use of the red beacon for VIPs and VVIPs.
