Hathras (UP): Police personnel on election
duty Monday went on a rampage damaging vehicles and blocking
road traffic after one of their colleagues was allegedly
manhandled by a senior officer.

Agitated over the incident, the policemen pelted stones
at vehicles, blocked Aligarh-Hathras road for several hours
and damaged cameras of mediapersons, officials said here.

The blockade was lifted after Additional Superintendent
of Police Ashok Kumar Shukla who allegedly manhandled the
jawan was shifted.

Chief Electoral Officer Umesh Sinha said the ASP had been
shifted and attached to the DGP headquarters.

"A detailed report has been sought from the DM and the SP
of Hathras district," he told reporters in Lucknow.
