A video of a police station in-charge kicking a laborer in Madhya Pradesh’s Khargone district went viral on social media, prompting the authorities to take away the policeman from discipline obligation, an official mentioned on Wednesday.
The video of the alleged incident, which came about on Monday, reveals Balakwada police station in-charge Varun Tiwari kicking a labourer, the official mentioned.
“We discovered in regards to the viral video, and shortly after, the Balakwada police station in-charge was line-attached (faraway from discipline obligation) following the directives of the superintendent of police, on Tuesday,” senior police officer Neeraj Chourasia mentioned.
The incident allegedly occurred when an overloaded pick-up automobile carrying labourers was intercepted by the police on AB Road on Monday, he mentioned.
While a probe has been initiated into the incident, the authenticity of the video can be being verified, the official added.
