According to the report, the police officer whom he is misbehaving with is Harendra Singh Jat. Harendra Singh Jat is posted as a sub-inspector in the traffic department of Sambhal police.
Ashraf was walking without a helmet while checking at the Chandausi intersection so he was stopped. Ashraf first tried to get a Samajwadi Party (SP) leader to speak to a policeman over the phone. Ashraf was furious when the policeman asked him to give the challan for not wearing a helmet.
