Tinsukia: Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Anand Mishra, who is leading the “Ride for Pride” bike rally of Assam police, met with an accident on National Highway 37 near Jaklabanda, around 185 km from Guwahati, in Nagaon district on Saturday night.

Mishra, holding charge of assistant inspector general, was rushed to Jaklabanda civil hospital with injuries in his legs and arms.

The accident took place when the Ride of Pride, a rally organized to celebrate the prestigious President’s Colour Award, making it 10th state police force in the country to bag the highest honour, was in its last leg after travelling almost 2,000 km and traversing through nearly 27 districts of the state.

The bike rally was flagged off from Dhubri.

According to sources, the incident occurred when Mishra and his team were riding from Kaziranga to Kaliabor. Their cavalcade collided with a cow that suddenly appeared on the highway near Baghjona at Jaklabanda. “Mishra fell off the motorcycle after the collision and sustained injuries,” sources said.

“The doctors at Jaklabanda civil hospital discharged Mishra after treatment with an advice not to ride motorcycle for time being,” sources said, adding, “Mishra sat in a four wheeler and headed towards Guwahati where the rally is set to culminate.” 

Attempts to speak to Mishra turned futile.
