CCB to probe attack on Africans

The Central Crime Branch (CCB) of the City police will probe the recent incidents of violence, involving Africans and the residents of Kothanur and Hennur areas.

City Police Commissioner M N Reddi told reporters on Saturday, “Two cases have been registered at Hennur and Kothanur police stations and nine persons have been arrested in this regard. A few persons expressed doubts over the investigation by the local police. Hence, the cases have been transferred to CCB,” Reddi said.

He said that everyone should abide by the law. The police will take stern action against those who violate the law of the land. The law is applicable to locals as well as Africans, he said.

Retired DCP D'Souza has been appointed the special officer to ensure coordination and harmony between the locals and the Africans in these areas, he said.

TN cop to be arrested  
A team of the Ulsoor police has left for Madurai to arrest Tamil Nadu cop Raja Ram, who is accused of assaulting his daughter in full public view near Ulsoor Circle on Thursday.

The police have registered a suo motu case and the Ulsoor police will take up the issue with higher police officials of Madurai, DCP (East) Satheesh Kumar said.

Raja Ram was suspended two months ago. He stays with his family in Madurai. His daughter is employed in Bengaluru. Ram lost his cool after he came to know his daughter had an affair with a man in Bengaluru. He came to the City with his wife, who is a teacher in Madurai, and attacked his daughter. The incident invited the wrath of the civil society as the pictures of the brutality were uploaded on social media. The Ulsoor police had not registered a case as neither the man nor his daughter was willing to lodge a complaint.
