Kerala police chief Loknath Behera has reportedly ordered enquiry against Ranni Circle Inspector (CI) Newman for behaving harshly with a two-year-old child.
The video, where the cop can be seen pushing a child when she tries to go to her mother inside the police station, has been doing the rounds on social media for a few days. The two-year-old child Bella Rose, daughter of Reena who was arrested by police for protesting against quarrying, can be seen crying loudly, after being thrown out by the cop on Monday.
Reena was inside the police station and Bella was waiting for her outside on the steps. The report said that Bella was hungry and she tried to get inside the station for food. It was then that the CI pushed her.
Protests against quarrying at Champanmalamudimala in Pathanamthitta district have been going on for the last few days. While the company claimed that it had license for quarrying, locals have alleged that all the license documents were forged.
Behera reportedly said that ADGP B Sandhya would enquire into the issue and will take necessary action.
