Statesman News Service | Shimla |

An Israeli woman allegedly under the influence of drugs, created ruckus in Dharamshala in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, around 240 km from here and assaulted cops, injuring six of them including women constables.

The woman also damaged a police van and smashed window panes at Zonal Hospital Dharamshala on Thursday morning.

Police said they received a call in the morning that a foreign national was creating ruckus at McLoedganj after which a police team was rushed to the spot.

The call was made by the Israeli national’s friend, a Swedish national who complained that she had turned violent and was creating ruckus in market place.

“When the police team tried to pacify her, she allegedly started assaulting the cops after which the cops tried to take her to hospital. But as the cops tried to board her into police van, she allegedly kicked the windscreen of the police van and completely smashed it,” police said.

Though she didn’t stop at that and turned even more violent upon reaching at Zonal Hospital and started to smash window panes.

Police had a tough time in controlling the Israeli national and she had to be tied her to a hospital bed to stop her from causing more damage.

In the ruckus that lasted around one hour, six cops including woman constables were injured, however, these were of minor nature.

She was sent for medical examination to ascertain whether the woman was high on drugs or she is mentally unstable.

Her antecedents are also being verified as to when she had arrived in Dharamshala or how long she had being staying there.

It is worthwhile to mention here that tourists mostly Israelis visit Dharamshala especially Dharamkot area which is infamous for drug abuse and is also known as mini Tel Aviv of Hills.
