A Bengaluru traffic policeman was caught on camera furiously kicking a woman who had allegedly attacked him with a stone after her car was towed away. The cop has been suspended, said the city traffic police. The woman has been sent to judicial custody, said the police.
The incident is from January 24 near the Town Hall under the SJ Park Police station limits.
“Traffic ASI Mr Narayan who allegedly assaulted a woman is suspended from yesterday pending enquiry,” said the traffic police in a statement.
The traffic cop was reportedly towing vehicles parked in no parking zones. The victim’s vehicle was also lifted that led to the verbal argument. The horrific video surfaced on Saturday evening.
The cop has filed a counter complaint alleging that the woman attacked him with a stone. Reports say the cop after being hit lost his cool and assaulted the woman.
The video shows the cop repeatedly kicking the woman on the ground with no one intervening.
