Jamshedpur: Film actress Mahima Chaudhury took a bike lift from a traffic police inspector to escape eve-teasers here on Saturday.

Mahima, best known for her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Subhash Ghai's 'Pardes', was in this steel city to take part at a promotional event near Jubilee Park in Bistupur.

In the absence of adequate security, the 37-year-old actress could not even run away from the spot as those participating in the 'green run' were the ones misbehaving, police said.

A few media photographers and an official of Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) rushed to her rescue and asked traffic police inspector Dilip Kumar Singh to intervene.

"I have neither seen her before nor knew who is she, but I carried her on my motorcycle after being informed about the incident," Singh said.

After her number of films bombed badly at the box-office Mahima, who made her debut in 1997, is hardly seen on the silver screen these days.
