Mangaluru, Dec 5: Sullia police sub inspector Manjunath was accused of assaulting a person and lodged a complaint against the officer with the SP.

Ravindra Gowda of Melchembu of Balembi alleged in the complaint given to the SP that the Sullia court has issued a warrant in a cheque bounce case. When he had been to Bengaluru to get stay order, Sullia police have searched for him. As he was not available when they searched him, PSI Manjunath and other police personnel have taken him to the police station and assaulted him inhumanly, he alleged.

“As I was beaten up with hockey stick and iron rod, I have sustained injuries and I am down mentally and physically. Earlier also, the PSI had come to my house and showed the pistol to my wife and mother threatening them that he would kill me”, he alleged in the complaint.

The police officer has been harassing him saying that “he would keep ganja and heroin in my house and fix me in the case. Or else, he would fix me in a murder case”, due to which he was under fear. So, it should be investigated properly and ensure him justice, he demanded.

“Ravindra Gowda has given him a complaint against Sullia PSI Manjunath alleging that the officer has assaulted him. Action would be taken after detailed enquiry”.
