AP police asked to file report on misconduct with ABVP member

APSHRC directed the State DGP to file a report before Sept 27 on the incident, wherein 2 police officials misbehaved with a female ABVP member.

Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission (APSHRC) on Saturday directed the State Director General of Police to file a report before it by September 27 on the incident, wherein two police officials allegedly manhandled and misbehaved with a female ABVP member at Kushaiguda police station here.

APSHRC acting chairman Kakumanu Peda Peri Reddy passed these orders after the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activist approached the Commission and complained that the two officials manhandled and misbehaved with her at a protest here yesterday.

In the complaint, the girl, who is a B Tech student, accused Kushaiguda Inspector Manohar Reddy of manhandling her and Sub-Inspector Narender Reddy with using foul language against her while she, along with other ABVP members, were holding an agitation demanding to hoist flag at the sub-Registrar office in Kushaiguda as part of the Telangana Liberation Day celebrations yesterday.

TV footage in some local channels had shown that the Inspector had put his hand on the girl`s waist and pushed her away. After the incident, hundreds of ABVP activists led by BJP state president G Kishan Reddy laid siege to the police station for over 10 hours demanding immediate suspension of the two cops.
Following the protests, Cyberabad Police Commissioner S Prabhakar Reddy, who transferred the two cops, said on Saturday that "an inquiry is being carried out in the incident. What action will be initiated will depend on the outcome of the report."
