Taking stern note of the allegations that a man was brutally thrashed during night patrolling, four police personnel, including one Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI), have been attached to the district Police Headquarters in Bhadrak.
The wife of one Gopinath Nayak had lodged a complaint against the four police personnel alleging assault on her husband. It is alleged that Nayak was beaten up by four police personnel, including an ASI, a constable, and two home guards during night patrolling near Kandaba bridge under Agarpada police limits on December 30, 2023.
Following the incident, Nayak was first admitted to the local Community Health Centre (CHC) and later shifted to Bhadrak District Headquarters Hospital.
Bhadrak Additional SP, Bamdev Singh informed that two separate cases have been registered in connection with the incident. However, a clear picture is likely to emerge only after conducting a detailed investigation in this regard, he said.
