In a shocking incident, an assistant sub-inspector of Dera Bassi police, beat up a person for overtaking an ASI’s car on Thursday.

The victim, Surender Singh, filed a complaint against the cop to SSP, SAS Nagar, in which he stated the details of the incident. Returning from Delhi, he was on his way to Chandigarh when he overtook the car of the ASI. The infuriated official lost his cool and asked other cops who were deployed at a check-post on that route, to stop Singh for investigation.

“Instead of checking my documents, the cops at the check-post, started beating me,” Singh said.

After being beaten and humiliated for no fault of his, the police officials took him to the police station where ASI Harpal Singh threatened him. Singh explained that he was denied from even filing a complaint in the first place, and asked him to leave the police station or they would falsely implicate him in a drug case. “Instead of lodging my complaint, they forcibly made me sign an apology letter,” he added.

The complaint has been forwarded to DSP Kharar. The police said they were investigating the matter and ensured that appropriate action would be taken in the matter.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
