Abohar, September 3

A farm worker was admitted to the Civil Hospital on Wednesday evening after he was allegedly tortured by a policeman at the Wahabwala police station here.

Jagrup Singh of Kala Tibba village said he was taken to the police station by Head Constable Raj Kumar allegedly at the behest of his employer Kapil Chaudhary of Rajanwali village. In the police station, he was tortured, Jagrup claimed.

His mother Mango Devi said the family took Jagrup to the hospital from the police station. The SSP has directed DSP Avtar Singh to investigate the matter.

Jagrup’s wife Sandeep Kaur, who is also under treatment, alleged her husband had thrashed her under influence of liquor. Head Constable Raj said he had simply intervened to protect Jagrup’s wife. — OC
