Bengaluru: Constable booked for assaulting trader | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A constable attached with Ulsoorgate police station landed in trouble after he allegedly assaulted a 30-year-old trader and robbed him of his mobile phone over a personal issue.
V Rajesh, a resident of SP Road and owner of a mobile phone accessory shop, had approached the court and obtained a direction for police to register a criminal case against Shivakumar.
Shivakumar has been booked under sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) 392 (robbery), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons), 504 (intentional insult)and 506 (act with criminal intimidation).
An officer from SJ Park police station said Rajesh will be summoned on February 20 to identify his attacker. “There are three persons in the police station with the same name. The complainant hasn’t mentioned the full name or designation of the accused. Two Shivakumars are police constables, while the third is an assistant sub-inspector. We will initiate legal action once Rajesh identifies the accused,” the officer told TOI.
Locked him up illegally
Rajesh said Shivakumar manhandled him on the evening of December 24, 2020.
“I had stood as surety for a business deal between one Dinesh and another person. According to the deal, the other person should have paid Rs 1 lakh for the materials he had purchased from Dinesh. But, he failed to pay money and Dinesh was forcing me to get him to do so. On December 24, Shivakumar entered my shop and asked why the payments hadn’t been made. Before I could answer, he punched me on the face and forcibly took me in his bike to Ulsoorgate station. He locked me in the cell for a couple of hours and when I asked why he was locking me without a complaint, he hit me with a cane on my ribs and back,” Rajesh said.
Before sending Rajesh away, Shivakumar allegedly snatched his mobile phone and never returned it.
The next day, Rajesh went to Ulsoorgate police station to file a complaint.
“Ulsoorgate cops directed me to SJ Park station since my shop, from where Shivakumar took me to the station, was in the latter’s limits. At SJ Park station, they registered a non-cognizable report and told me to approach the court to convert the same into a first information report. Earlier this week, the FIR was registered,” he added.
