Bureaucrat's wife assaults inspector

A woman police inspector was allegedly assaulted by the wife of Pankaj Kumar Pandey, Managing Director of Hubli Electricity Supply Company, following a verbal duel over an entry pass to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Sunday.

Anjumala T Nayak, Inspector of Ulsoorgate Women’s Police Station, alleged that Pandey’s wife hit her on the face and wounded her ear, when she came out of the stadium’s Gate No 1 and picked a quarrel with her. The scuffle also left the inspector’s hands bruised.

According to Anjumala, it all started when Pandey’s wife tried to enter the stadium through a gate for which she did not have an entry pass for a match of the Celebrity Cricket League. But the policewoman prevented her from doing so. The IAS officer’s wife then called someone who came out of the stadium and took her inside.

The matter would have been forgotten but Pandey’s wife reportedly picked a quarrel with Anjumala while coming out of the stadium. Pandey’s wife allegedly abused Anjumala and other police personnel and, in the heat of the moment, assaulted her.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) T Sunil Kumar said Anjumala and her colleagues tried in vain to pursue Pandey’s wife.

Anjumala then went to the Cubbon Park police station and lodged a complaint against Pandey’s wife.
