Mentally challenged man assaulted in police station; probe ordered
A mentally challenged man was brutally assaulted allegedly by at least three policemen inside a police station for disrupting traffic and pelting stones on commuters in the city.
The incident came to light Friday after a video clip of the assault was circulated, purportedly showing two to three policemen thrashing and kicking the mentally-challenged man after tying his hands and legs inside Surajpol police station premises in Udaipur.
The man was picked up by the policemen after locals complained about him creating nuisance and causing traffic-jam on Gulab Bagh road on Thursday afternoon. He also pelted stones at the commuters.
“The matter came to light yesterday. I have ordered an inquiry by A DySP rank official and action against policemen found guilty of beating the mentally challenged person in the police station will taken after the probe,” SP Udaipur Ajay Pal Lamba told PTI Saturday.
He said the man has been shifted to an asylum.
