Golda explained that she rather stopped in the middle of the road to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle which refused to stop.
The officers reportedly tried to enter the car but she refused to let them in and thereafter tried to brutalize her for insisting on her rights.
They then shoved her sister around for taking photos of them and further tried to extort monies from them.
Golda has indicated that she will share the details of the identities of the officers involved if the top officer involved refuses her request for a face-to-face meeting.
She will thereafter name and shame as they are a disgrace to the country and their uniforms.
