3 accused out on bail rough up inspector, sent to jail

Three accused, who were recently out on bail and had come to the Rajagopal Nagar police station to complete their bail formalities, were sent back to jail after they hurled
abuses and roughed up a police inspector on March 16.

The accused Byresh, Mahesh and Halesh were booked under IPC section 353 - assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty and 504 - intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace.

Police inspector Dinesh Patil B S in his complaint stated that around three to four men barged into his chamber on March 16 around 8.15 pm.

Three men among them, who were accused in a case pertaining to causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others, had come with bail orders to finish formalities at the station.

The accused trio all of a sudden engaged in heated arguments with the police inspector stating they were “fixed” in the case and abused the officer in filthy language.

When the inspector warned them, the trio roughed him up. In the melee, the inspector’s uniform was torn. There were other policemen including PC Muthubandi, WPC Jamuna, and SHO Narasaiah who were witnesses to the incident. There were other people also waiting to file complaints at the station.

The police filed another case against the three, arrested them immediately, produced them before a magistrate and remanded them in judicial custody.
