Ludhiana, October 10

A woman, Rani Dhaliwal, of CRP Colony, Dugri, alleged that her 16-year-old nephew, Rohan, was picked by officials of the Police Division 2 after he had a scuffle with a roadside vendor on Saturday night at Islamganj.

The woman, who is a SAD worker, demanded immediate action against guilty police officials.

The woman alleged that her son runs a tavern in Islamganj and yesterday her nephew also went there. “My nephew had arguments with the roadside vendor over some issue following which the latter, along with his companions, thrashed him. Later, the anti-narcotics cell inspector-cum-SHO of the Police Division 2 Rajesh Kumar came along with police officials and took my nephew to the police station where he was beaten up by police officials and some civilians,” the woman said.

It was only when they reached the police station, the police allowed her nephew to leave by reaching a compromise with the disputing parties, the woman said, adding that the police had badly thrashed the boy as he also suffered some injuries.

The woman demanded that action should be taken against the civilians who had also thrashed her nephew inside the police station.

She alleged that the police also took two gold earrings and Rs 2,500 from her nephew. Inspector Rajesh, who has the additional charge of the police station, said the minor boy was not beaten up by police officials. The allegations levelled by the police are baseless.”
