60-year-old woman beaten to death by Bihar police officer

Madhubani SP Saurabh Kumar told reporters that there was formal complaint that 60-year-old Bhulli Devi was punched and kicked by station house officer Laxman Prasad at Narkatiya village and died on the spot.

Bhulla Devi's husband, who was present at the spot, could not put up any resistance and later filed an FIR. Her son, for whom the police is on the look out for preventive detention in view of the coming assembly polls, is absconding.

The SHO has not yet been arrested and a case has been registered against him in connection with the incident. An inquiry has been ordered and action against the SHO would be taken based on the report, he said.
