A youth who was riding a bike was stopped by the police and taken to the nearest police station and was severely beaten up by the cop after he could not provide driving license.
The youth fell ill in the police station and was taken to the nearby hospital at Nadia district’s Dhantala. But he had lost his consciousness by then.
The victim was admitted in the hospital and is battling for life. On November 3, the doctor asked his
guardians to take him in his residence.
The incident took place at Andulpota crossing of Dhantala, when the youth, Uttam Biswas was stopped by the Assistant Sub Inspector of police, Debasis Ghosh. Ghosh asked him to show his license, but the youth could not provide it.
Then the officer dragged him by his collar to the jeep. His vehicle was seized from there.
Biswas was taken to the police station then and there and kept in the lock up. The victim reportedly argued with the police and Ghosh started beating him there.
The intensity of those strikes was so heavy that Biswas fell on the ground. He lost his sense there.
The police then took him to the hospital and informed his residence.
The family of the Biswas lodged complaints with SDPO Indrajit Biswas as he assured them to run a probe in this incident.
“The condition of our son is still critical. The doctor asked us to give him medicine in time,” said a family member of Biswas.
However, a friend of Biswas revealed, the youth took his aunt who was riding pillion to a health centre and was returning home.
But the ASI caught him in the middle of the road. Biswas apologised, but the ASI started beating him on the road.
“My friend was even ready to give a fine,” his friend said.
