Banaswadi police officers assaulted a man after they claimed that he "disrespected" them by keeping his hands in his pocket, in Janakiram Layout on July 28.

In addition to this, the officers assaulted his son for trying to reason with them.

The victims have been identified as Sathish and his son Samson, residents of Lingarajapuram.

Sub Inspector Murali, with five other officers, were inquiring regarding stolen bikes when the incident took place.

Spotting two bikes parked in front of Sathish's stove repairing shop, Murali asked whose they were, and Sathish came down from the shop and said that they were his.

When the officers demanded that the papers of the bikes be shown, the man replied that he had the papers of one of the bikes with him, while those of the other were at home, all the while keeping his hands in his trouser pocket.

Claiming that Sathish was "direspecting" them by keeping his hands in his pocket, the officers demanded that the documents of the bike be brought to them from home.

Then, enraged, they began beating Sathish, when Samson came to reason with them. He, too, was assaulted there, after which the father and son were moved to the police station, where they were further assaulted.

A group of DSS members, who witnessed the incident, on Thursday protested against the incident at the police station and demanded suspension of the officers.
