Police have done their duty by beating up Amit Kadam, certifies SP

Tulzapur: Shri. Shyam Dighavkar, the Superintendent of Police gave an explanation in the press conference that Amit Kadam was rashly driving his two-wheeler and talked very rudely with me when he was accosted by me. So the assistant policeman only once caned Shri. Kadam.

Shri. Dighavkar stated that while removing the encroachments on the road and controlling traffic, Shri. Kadam came on his two-wheeler with a very high speed. When the police tried to control him, he started shouting. Therefore, a policeman lightly hit him with a stick. The SP said that since Kadam turned out to be known to the local police inspector, he did not pay much attention to Kadam. Therefore, there was no question of him hitting Kadam. Shri. Kadam is making a mountain of a molehill.

If Shri. Kadam is wrong and the Police are right, why are they bringing pressure on Kadam to take back complaint through the medium of reporters?

In this matter even if we assume that the police are telling the truth, there is no law that will advocate beating someone brutally for being rude. The SP should also explain as to why action as per law was not taken. Police has no moral right to punish anyone when they themselves are not following the law.

Shri. Dighavkar is saying that a policeman lightly hit him with a stick then how could Kadam get seriously injured if he was hit only once?
