A stenographer working at the Deputy Commissioner of Police office (west division) in Bengaluru was allegedly physically assaulted by a woman police constable at KSRTC's Majestic bus depot late on Monday, May 20. A complaint about the incident has now been filed with Upparpet police station.

The woman police constable reportedly works under the south-east division.

The initial probe has revealed that they used to work at the south division a few months back and used to quarrel over petty issues. They had also complained against each other several times. Hence, the man was transferred to the west division a few months ago, reports Deccan Herald.

In his complaint, the man claims that he had taken a bus from the Majestic bus depot to go to his native place - Pavagada in Tumkur district - at around 9.15 pm. The woman was also on the same bus and allegedly started abusing him.

Embarrassed by the incident, the man got down from the bus and boarded another one. But the woman allegedly had no plans of letting him go as she also followed him to the bus and dragged him out by catching his collar and slapped him in front of other passengers at the platform.

The man tried to avoid further humiliation and tried to get away from her grasp, but she allegedly punched him and knocked him down. She also tried to strangle him. By then, some of the passengers came to his rescue and he was freed.

He immediately informed Upparpet police station but the woman had allegedly fled from the scene. Upparpet police have charged the woman constable for assault and criminal intimidation. They have also summoned her for questioning.
