Joint Commisioner to probe cop's humiliation

A day after a city court directed Commissioner of Delhi Police to investigate into making constable roll on the ground for around 100 metres on Tuesday by a senior police official, the city police chief on Wednesday asked Sandeep Goel, Joint Commissioner (crime), to conduct an inquiry into the matter.

“The Joint Commissioner has been asked to conduct the inquiry as per the directions of the court,” Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Seju P Kurvila told constable Dinesh Kumar to roll on the ground after Kumar was allegedly found not frisking people at gate no 6 in Patiala House court. Kumar rolled for almost 100 metres.

Lawyers present at the site protested against Kurvila’s move. They said such an act was “inhuman”. More lawyers gathered on the premises in protest against Kurvila’s behaviour and demanded action against the Additional DCP.

They said such inhuman, illegal and derogatory order should not be passed by anybody on a subordinate again. Advocates Mahender Singh Yadav, Tarun Rana, B B Tyagi and S N Sharma took the initiative to ask the court to intervene.

Following which, the court directed Commissioner of Delhi Police to take action against Kurvila and submit report within a month.
