Karnataka cops assaulted me, had my hair trimmed over Facebook post: Teen | Bengaluru News – Times of India


A teenager has accused cops attached to a police station in Chikkamagaluru Rural district of assaulting him and forcibly trimming his hair after he remarked on the photograph of a gram panchayat candidate on Facebook.
Sunil, 16, currently undergoing treatment at the district hospital, said a comment he made on the photograph posted by Shekhar, a GP contestant, created controversy. “The candidate filed a complaint at Mallanduru police station, following which the sub-inspector called me to the station on Sunday,” Sunil said.
The 16-year-old said on going to the station, he apologised for his remark. “I did not think twice before throwing myself at the SI’s feet. But the cops took me to a place behind the building, where there were no CCTV cameras, and thrashed me. Then they took me to a hairdresser close to the station where my long hair was trimmed. Police even demanded money from me,” Sunil alleged.
Mallanduru police station sub-inspector Renuka, however, said she was unaware of the entire incident. “I was part of the security cover for Datta Jayanti celebrations on Sunday,” she said.
Chikkamagaluru SP HA Machhindra said the teenager’s allegations will be looked into.
