In an unfortunate incident caught on camera, a policeman has been found repeatedly slapping a retired Army official in a bank queue in Bagalkot on Wednesday.
The clip shows the policeman beating and pushing the elderly gentleman.
The man, dressed in white, is reported to have been standing to withdraw money from a bank in Bagalkot. The video shows the elderly man trying to reason with his aggressor, but the constable reacts angrily.
After a complaint was registered against the policeman for his misbehavior, he has reportedly been suspended by senior officials of the Karnataka police.
