Hyderabad: Trouble is mounting for Telangana police after the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) issued a show-cause notice to Director-General of Police asking as to why a case should not be registered against the officers involved in the arrest of BJP state president and Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar in Siddipet on Monday.
The NCBC directed Chief Secretary and DGP to submit their reply by November 5.
Achary Thalloju, member National Commission for Backward Classes, said police have acted superfluously and manhandled Sanjay Kumar, who belongs to backward community and is a member of the OBC parliamentary committee in Lok Sabha.
He said the commission is duty-bound to investigate and monitor all matters relating to safeguarding the socially and educationally backward classes under the constitution.
The commission, he said, is empowered to take the matter suo-moto and enquire the facts of the case. He said the commission has all the powers of a civil court to summon and enforce the attendance of any person or require the discovery and production of any document.
“In this regard, this commission issues a show-cause notice as to why a case should not be registered against the officers and police personnel involved in such malevolence act and to further make inquiry and investigation to safeguard the rights of OBCs” the notice read.
