Mizoram Govt Employee Allege Assault By Policemen in Mumbai

Mumbai, Jun 9 : A 28-year-old youth, employed with the Government of Mizoram, has alleged that he was assaulted by four plainclothes police officers outside a cafe near the Gateway of India here.

According to the youth, he and his two friends were sitting outside the cafe at around 12.50 am when four plainclothes policemen approached and ordered them to go home.

"When we replied that we are leaving in a while, one of them asked me to show my identification card. So I asked them to show their identification cards first since they were in plainclothes," the victim alleged.

"All of them were furious and one of them began beating me up with a baton, even though I told him that I am a government servant. One of my female friends got frightened and she repeatedly requested them to leave me alone, but they turned a deaf ear and continued roughing me up," he said.

"After we began leaving the place, one plainclothes policeman dragged me into a police jeep, took me to the Colaba police station and inspected my identification card," he said.

"Even after assuring them that I am a government servant serving in the Government of Mizoram's guest house in Parel, they detained me in the police station upto 1.40 am," he said.

The victim reported the incident to Mizoram's Resident Commissioner in Maharashtra who is contemplating to lodge a formal complaint.

"Yes, the victim has narrated the incident which is extremely unfortunate. We are contemplating about filing a case against the police atrocity," Resident Commissioner of Mizoram in Maharashtra V Zaithanmawia said.
