Mangaluru: Alleging torture, farmer complains to SP against Sullia sub-inspector


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Dec 7: Raveendra Gowda, a farmer from Balembi Melchembu near Sullia, has complained to Dakshina Kannada district superintendent of police (SP), accusing police sub-inspector of Sullia station of launching murderous assault on him.

"I had been issued a warrant by the Sullia court relating to cheque bounce case. I had visited Bengaluru to secure stay order against this warrant when Sullia police came searching for me. The police grew angry at not finding me during their visit. The sub-inspector and other staff took me to the police station and indiscriminately hit me with hockey stick and iron rod, resulting in bruised skin and blood clots. I have been devastated mentally and physically. In the past too the sub-inspector, Manjunath, came to my house, pointed pistol at my wife and mother, and threatened them to eliminate me through encounter," he stated in his complaint.

Raveendra further said that he had also told his family that he would either fix him by planting ganja and heroin in his house or in a murder case. He said that these threats have created an atmosphere of terror. Therefore, he has requested the SP to conduct detailed probe and do justice to him.

District superintendent of police, Dr B R Ravikanthe Gowda, confirmed having received the said complaint. He said he would find out about the genuineness of the complaint and take further steps as may be deemed appropriate.

    Nothing new.. these police people are born to do goondagiri. They never understand problems of people. everyone in their life will have to face some problems monetarily and that will lead them to loans debts etc etc.. police people will always support rich people with money... i have seen live examples..... they are merciless, inhumane people

    Please take proper action & suspend or dismiss the SI... Because has done this taking bribe for sure ...
    He has no right to beat & show pistol to family members .
    Yes in one way Raveendra is wrong buy not paying money in ti,e . But he has taken legal steps going through court .Still the SI has no right to beat him without doing proper investigation,
    There should put a case on SI for taking bribe(Punishment for bribery ),Gonda act, Attempt to murder, Life threatening ,
    Request Raveendra to put even to complaint to CM, & HM..
