Mumbai: Ten CISF personnel, including an
Assistant Commandant, were on Friday booked for allegedly
thrashing four policemen and kidnapping them in south Mumbai,
police said on Friday.
An FIR was registered against Central Industrial Security
Force (CISF) men, including Assistant Commandant Alok Joshi,
who badly assaulted four constables and one of them was even
confined to a room belonging to the security force, Senior
Inspector R Bhogale told agency.
Police constable Pramod Tawde was manning the traffic
outside Orange gate of Mumbai Port Trust when he saw a truck
heading towards the gate plying in a wrong direction.
"Tawde intercepted the truck and asked the driver to show
his license. CISF men objected to it and told Tawde to allow
the truck to enter," Bhogale said.
"However, Tawde said the truck would be allowed to go
only after interrogating the driver. This led to a heated
argument between CISF jawan Kalyan Singh and Tawde. Singh
thrashed the constable and after sometime, some more CISF
jawans joined the fight. Tawde was dragged inside the MPT
premises and confined to a room," he said.
Two more traffic constables and one from Yellow Gate
police station, who went to the spot after learning about the
incident, were also assaulted by CISF men, including Joshi,
with bamboos and guns, the inspector said.
"When we reached there, all four police constables were
injured and Tawde was rushed to nearby hospital with severe
injuries," he added.
The accused were booked under various sections of IPC.
No immediate arrests were made, he said, adding further
probe was on.
