HYDERABAD: A sub-inspector suffered injuries while intercepting a drunk biker at KPHB Colony in Telangana capital Hyderabad on Tuesday.

The SI who suffered a leg fracture underwent surgery at a nearby hospital.
Police registered a case against him under Section 333 of the IPC and the MV Act for causing grievous injury to a public servant while driving under the influence of alcohol.
