Two cops beaten for trying to break up fight

New Delhi, Dec 1, 2012, DHNS :

Two Delhi Police personnel posted with a police control room vehicle were roughed up by two brothers when they went to break up a scuffle in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj.

The accused were overpowered by the policemen and their colleagues from another PCR vehicle.

Head constable Ram Khilari and constable Ashok Kumar, posted with PCR-43 in South Zone, suffered minor injuries in the incident which occurred during the wee hours of Wednesday.

According to police, a local person had approached their PCR vehicle regarding a scuffle between some youths near Fortis Hospital on Aruna Asaf Ali Marg.

“When they reached the spot around 1.30 am, they saw three men indulging in a scuffle,” a police official said.

Ashok then came out of the vehicle to bring the situation under control, but he was beaten up by two assailants. Seeing this, head constable Ram tried to sent a message to the control room through his wireless.

“However, the accused snatched and damaged the wireless’s mouthpiece and began to abuse Ram. They also abused the head constable and misbehaved with him,” the official added.

Soon, another PCR vehicle came to the spot, and its staff helped Ram and Ashok overpower all the men involved in the scuffle.

The culprits were then identified as Vaibhav Sharma and his brother Saurabh, and have been arrested. Sangam Vihar resident Ashish Kumar, present at the spot, alleged that he was also beaten up by the two brothers over an enmity. The two policemen and the suspects  later underwent medical examination at Safdarjang Hospital.

A case has been lodged against Vaibhav and Saurabh with Vasant Kunj North police station.
