Bengaluru: Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Renukaiah was seen assaulting a woman inside Kumaraswamy layout police station on Tuesday in Bengaluru. The woman had approached the police with respect to a family dispute.
The complainant married against her family's wish and she landed in the police station seeking help from the cops. A heated argument broke out between the cops and the complainant's mother when they took the complainant's side. The mother asked the policeman not to interfere in their family matter and even threatened the police officials claiming that she would set herself on fire and commit suicide in front of the police station.
Enraged by the woman's comments, Renukaiah began to slap the woman and pushed her out of the police station. He also warned her not to create nuisance in the police station. Bengaluru South DCP Annamalai immediately suspended the police officer for his "wrongful behaviour " with the woman.
