Later, additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP) city-4 Swapan Sharma reached the spot and suspended four cops deputed at the police post, following which the protesters ended the stir.

In his complaint, Raj Kumar, father of Nitin, alleged that Parkash, a BJP worker, indulged in a scuffle with his son after hitting him with his scooter. He added that when Nitin resented, Parkash and his accomplices assaulted him, following which they filed a complaint at Tibba Road police post against the BJP workers, who were summoned to the police post.

Meanwhile, Jaipal Sharma of BJP, alleged that when he, along with his supporters, reached the police post for intervening in the matter, the police had apprehended some of the party workers and were thrashing them.

When he objected, the cops threatened him and other party workers and misbehaved. Therefore, they staged a protest outside the police post. BJP city president Parveen Bansal also reached the spot.

ADCP Sharma said the police were investigating the matter of manhandling of BJP workers by cops, and four cops had been suspended. But the names has slipped his mind.
