Though the cops caught the drunken S-I and got his medical examination done, they allowed him to go without initiating action against him under relevant sections of the IPC/CrPc.

It was around 1 pm when candidates for local body election were busy filing their nominations and their supporters raising slogans. Suddenly, a man was spotted hurling expletives and engaging in fisticuffs with people trying to pacify him. 

On getting information CO Mahanagar Dhirendra Rai, who was ensuring security arrangement during nominations, went inside and asked the constables to throw the man out of the room. At this the S-I even misbehaved with policemen.However, CO Rai dragged the man out and brought him to the Mahanagar police station. The man was heavily drunk and was unable to speak properly. He was later taken for medical examination, which confirmed that he was drunk.

The man, who initially, was reluctant to disclose his identity, later identified himself as Anant Asthana, a sub-inspector with the LIU. The cops, however, claimed that a case was lodged against Asthana for creating nuisance at a public place.
