Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Nov 7: The city police commissioner, T R Suresh, has suspended assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of Bunder police station here, Chandrashekhar, in connection with the alleged atrocities committed on a person named Ashraf Salethur. Ashraf, it is said, was taken into custody for publishing objectionable post in Facebook (FB).

Ashraf had been taken into custody on October 22 this year and produced in the court. He was sent to judicial custody by the court. After he secured bail, Ashraf had questioned police action through social websites.

In the meanwhile, responding to complaints made to the city police commissioner and district in-charge minister by certain organizations questioning registration of Suo motu case against Ashraf and committing atrocities on him, the police department undertook internal inquiry and decided to suspend the ASI stated above, it is gathered.

    When majority of the politicians blindly favour the minorities for vote bank, no one from the minority cribs. If your statement of 90% of Mangalore police being Chaddis is true, then it is the universe's way of striking equilibrium.

    Any atrocities from the police is a scar to the department and the police concerned is rightly accountable for the wrong committed

    90% of Mangalore Police are Chaddis in Police Uniform. This has been confirmed by the Cobrapost. It shall be made a law that 25% of police workforce shall be minorities. If this happens there will be no more riots in India.
