A group of people reportedly attacked Puthancruz Sub-Inspector Sajeev Kumar JS after allegedly finding him at a small-time serial actress' residence in Thiruvaniyoor near Kochi at 9:30 p.m. on Friday, June 10. It has also been alleged that the locals have beaten the police officer, who arrived at the actress' house in his own car. The latest reports suggest that the officer has been suspended.
According to reports, the people had also misbehaved with the actress in the name of moral policing and the duo was held captive for more than two hours before police reached the spot at 12:30 p.m. The inspector's mobile phone was also seized by the attackers. It is said that a case has been registered against 15 people for allegedly attacking the SI and seven others for misbehaving with the actress.
Meanwhile, due to the unsatisfactory explanation by the SI on the episode, a top official has reportedly said that Sajeev might face disciplinary action for violating the police code. Muvattupuzha DYSP Prabhullachandran has submitted a report about the incident to District Police Chief (Ernakulam Rural) PN Unnirajan.
After being attacked on Friday night, Sajeev was later admitted to a private hospital in Kolenchery. Meanwhile, officials also suspect the involvement of drug mafia behind the incident as three people who attacked the officer were earlier said to have been held for drug trafficking.
