Bengaluru policemen beat up biker, victim suffers kidney damage

Bengaluru City Police's image has been marred with an accusation of physical torture. DJ Halli police constable Aiyappa and other policemen have been accused of torturing a biker, Tanveer, for talking over the phone while riding.

The victim’s family have also accused the cops of targeting Tanveer because he is “Muslim”. According to Tanveer's brother Musavir, around midnight on April 9 midnight, Tanveer went out with his neighbour Danish to obtain medicines but was stopped by police constable Aiyappa and others who saw him talking over the phone while riding. They asked him to cut the call.

Aiyappa then allegedly struck him with a lathi, called him names, and passed derogatory remarks against the Muslim community. As Tanveer picked up the argument on seeing this attitude, he along with Danish were taken to the police station. Since Tanveer was the one who argued, he was assaulted with lathis, kicked with boots and spat upon.

His family has now approached city commissioner Suneel Kumar and also have written a letter to the Governor, DG, IGP and the Human Rights Commission seeking action against the policemen involved. The victim's brother has demanded that a case under IPC section 307(attempt to murder) and other charges which attract maximum punishment be filed against the policemen.

The 23-year-old Mohammed Tanveer is battling for his life in a Bengaluru hospital after the DJ Halli police officials brutally thrashed him for hours for using a mobile phone while riding his motorcycle.

According to the latest reports, the victim, on Tuesday, developed pneumonia and both his kidneys have been damaged. Tanveer is presently undergoing medical treatment and has still not been shifted to the ward from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Police officials have confirmed that constable Aiyappa has been suspended.
