Wanaparthy: Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development, Industries as well as IT and Commerce, KT Rama Rao, asked the state’s DGP, Mahender Reddy and Home Minister Mahmood Ali to take action against some police officers for their brutal treatment of a father and son.
Early morning on Monday a netizen user tweeted a video — in which Telangana Police was assaulting a civilian and his son — to Wanaparthy’s SP, Collector, the state’s DGP and KTR. This footage first caused outrage among netizens as it went viral.
TV5 reports that KTR tweeted to Ali and Reddy asking them for swift action.
Throughout the country, news of police clamping down upon people who venture out of their homes has been aplenty. Despite authorities also coming down hard upon law enforcement officials who are behaving excessively, the police’s high-handedness still continues.
The video linked above shows five policemen surrounding and manhandling and beating a man right in front of his son. Even as the son tries to stop the police, they pushed him away. The father and son were being hauled into the police van and then escorted away. The Wanaparthy SP then responded to the Minister’s tweet (see below)…
