Yesterday afternoon I went to the police station with my daughter and mother to inquire about that complaint. As there is no OC sir in the police station, when ASI Arif calls me, I go to him and tell him all the incidents. Then when I left, Arif (ASI) pulled my shirt collar from behind and took me to a room next to OC sir’s room. There they abused me and beat me a lot. Arif says do you know who you filed a complaint against in police station.

Sujan says you are exaggerating this, you know me, you know Daroga Arif, my name is Daroga Arif. Who do you look like? Later I said sir I don’t know Kaor, I came to know about my complaint. Arif (ASI) insulted me and said, Who are you following? If you talk too much, I will hang you two feet up and send you to the court. Later Maira kicked me out of there. Then I left from there.

When asked about the demand for justice, Sujan said, those who will go to the police station for justice like me, should get proper justice. And not being tortured by the police. The victim’s father demanded exemplary punishment of the policeman.
