A drunk police officer lost control of his vehicle (jeep), which ran over roadside vendors, injuring two, in Gwalior district’s Birla Nagar on Saturday, following which angry locals thrashed him and paraded him in torn clothes, with shoes on his head.
R S Mohnia, DySP at Police Training School, Tighra, Gwalior, begged for mercy with folded hands, but the enraged locals did not let him go and even shot a video of the incident which went viral online.
Mohnia was later rescued by policemen who came to know of the incident.
Abhishek Tiwari, additional superintendent of police (ASP), Gwalior said a case had been filed against Mohnia for rash driving and endangering the lives of others.
A medical examination of the senior officer was conducted following which he was released on bail.
Based on the video clip, police registered a case against 12 people — three named and nine unidentified — on charges of rioting, causing hurt and other sections of the IPC and Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
