A minor boy, who was driving a car but did not stop when the police signalled him to stop, was allegedly beaten up at Nalagarh police station today.

According to the boy’s mother, Renu Sharma, her son, aged 16, had gone to get his car refuelled on the Dattowal road when the SHO and an ASI signalled him to stop. The boy got scared on seeing the policemen and drove away.

She claimed that the policemen later came to their shop and took her son to the police station while humiliating them in front of other people. She submitted a complaint to the SDM, Nalagarh, Mahinder Pal.

The SDM said a complaint had been received from Renu Sharma, and the Nalagarh DSP had been directed to inquire into the incident within three days. He added that the boy’s medical check up was also being conducted to know the nature of injuries. Action would be taken against the policemen, as per the report findings.

He said that the policemen had signalled the boy to stop, as he was driving the car in a rash manner, which could have led to an accident.
