In an instance of police brutality, a Dalit woman accused of murdering her husband was beaten up by an inspector, prompting authorities to suspend him.
The incident occurred on Wednesday in Manyari village in Aliganj area here after Deepak Kumar was found strangulated following which his mother lodged an FIR and the police started looking for his wife Sangeeta.
The woman was rounded up after some time and allegedly confessed to the crime, SP, Sultanpur, Satyendra Veer Singh said. Despite the confession, the Inspector Kailash Nath Dubey beat her up as a subordinate lady officer looked on.
Condemning the incident, Singh said, "This kind of behaviour was really uncalled for. The lady had already confessed to the crime that she had murdered her husband....There was absolutely no need of beating up this lady so mercilessly."
