Udupi: Karkala town police inspector Imran had allegedly assaulted one Raghavendra Moily in a shop, on the pretext that the latter’s hand had touched the officer’s wife while carrying things.
As he was being beaten up, the shopkeeper had appealed to the cop not to ill-treat him as he was not that kind of a person. The SI then took him to the station and he was subjected to a brutal assault again.
After the public, family members and organizations protested, SP Annamalai ordered an internal inquiry, which was held by Karkala ASP Dr Suman Pernekar. Accordingly, Annamalai ordered suspension of the SI on Friday, pending completion of the probe.
Now according to informed sources, Imran has been deputed to the crime section of the town police in Udupi. What action will be taken against him is not known immediately.
