A criminal case has been filed against Siricilla CCS Sub Inspector B Ravinder, accused of committing atrocities against Dalits of Nerella.
Following the orders of the High Court which summoned the Siricilla police on what actions have they taken against the accused SI, Siricilla police filed a criminal case against him, reported Deccan Chronicle.
Ravinder, along with 18 other police personnel including the Superintendent of police Vishwajit Kampati, were accused of exercising extreme force against the Dalits and also allegedly humiliating them with casteist slurs.
Ravinder was already under suspension for his actions, which were found to be true in the internal inquiry conducted by the police department.
The DC report added that the case was registered in the Thangapalli police station in Nerella.
Recently, the High Court had summoned the police and asked why they havenâ€™t taken an action against the erring police officials.
On July 2, a lorry fully loaded with sand had hit a villager, resulting in his death. Enraged with the incident, the villagers set at least four sand carrying trucks in protest against the rampant sand smuggling.
Subsequently the police had detained the villagers (Dalits and OBCs) and allegedly exercised brutal force against them.
