It was as if a hurricane had passed though the premises. Not a single thing in Vijay Nagar police in Indore was at its place. From tables, chairs, benches to computers and also the police jeep and other vehicles parked in the premises bore the brunt of the Armymen's attack.
Policemen who were at the spot and did not want to be named said that one of the police officers, who was the main target of young army officers, locked himself inside the toilet of the town inspector and fled by breaking open a plywood door on the rear end.
A accused of abetment for suicide, who was detained by Vijay Nagar police on Wednesday night, told the media persons that the policemen hid beneath the table to save themselves after they saw young officers inside the police station.
Sources said that about half a dozen of policemen were dragged and beaten by the army officers. "They divided themselves into three teams and all the three teams cordoned off the police station. After about 20 minutes one of them blew a whistle and all of sudden all of them fled from the spot on their bikes and jeeps," said a constable, on condition of anonymity.
As per the eyewitness present at the Vijay Nagar square, they even chased some constable and thrashed them badly. "The police constables who were seen standing near Vijay Nagar police station was also beaten by army officers," said a tea vendor who was present at the spot.
