Hyderabad: In an alleged case of police high-handedness, a youngster was severely beaten up by a sub-inspector of the Bahadurpura police station inside the station premises on 21 July.
Mohd. Aziz was called to the police station in connection with a quarrel that took place in front of his mobile repairing store a few days ago. When he went to the station, the sub-inspector, Madhu, beat him up. The cop did not allow him to go to a hospital even as he started bleeding from his nose, claimed Aziz’s brother Kareem.
According to sources, Aziz runs a mobile repair shop at Bahadurpura. A few days ago, two persons started a fight in front of the shop. Aziz intervened and sent them away. On Tuesday, one of the persons involved in the fight lodged a police complaint regarding the incident, following which the sub-inspector asked Aziz to come to the police station for an inquiry. “The officer beat me severely. Others told him that I was not involved in the fight yet he continued to beat me,” said Aziz.
