Police have suspended a cop and ordered an internal probe over thrashing of a senior police officer’s father in Tral town of Awantipora in south Kashmir.
“We have suspended a policeman and ordered an internal inquiry into the incident. If someone else will found involved in the beating of police officer’s father in Tral today, action will be taken against them also,” said SP Awantipora Mohammad Zahid Malik.
Police action comes in wake of a serious allegation levelled by a sub-inspector that his father was beaten up for not producing his driving license.
According to the sub-inspector Tahir Ahmad, his father Bashir Ahmad Bhat was returning home from Mundur village when a police team intercepted him near Hayuna village this afternoon.
He said the cops beat his father after he failed to produce driving license which he had left at his home. The cops, he said also hurled choicest abuses at him and his father when the latter told cops that his son too was serving police department.
“They abused my father, thrashed him and broke his right arm just because he told the cops his son too was a police officer,” Ahmad said.
Ahmad said that the cops posted at police station Tral did not entertain his complaint when he went there. (GNS)
