5 cops thrashed in police station by group of traders

| | New Delhi

Five policemen were allegedly thrashed by a group of 20 to 25 traders in East Delhi’s Gandhi Nagar area on Monday.

According to a senior police officer of the Shahdara district, the incident took place on Sunday afternoon when the alleged group barged into the Gandhi Nagar police station and attacked two Assistant Sub-Inspectors and three Constables. The incident happened after a team under the SHO of Gandhi Nagar had gone to the Subhash Mohalla to carry out sealing in some of the shops.

Enraged by the sealing, the traders came to the police station and started man-handling the policemen. The local police somehow managed to overpower the large number of traders, following which all the policemen were sent to a nearby hospital and an FIR under Sections IPC 186, 353, 332 and 34 has been registered at the Gandhi Nagar police station.

Confirming the incident, Nupur Prasad, DCP Shahdara said, “Six persons have been arrested in this matter. The policemen were man-handled and underwent treatment for minor injuries. Based on their MLC report, we took legal action.”

The arrested persons have been identified as Manoj Kukreja, Gulshan Kukreja, Manohar Lal, Sahil Taneja, Jatin Taneja, Puneet Kumar and Satyadev Gupta.
