First Information Report has been filed against the inspector of Police of the MKB Nagar All women Police station, Nazeema and eight other police personnel after Advocates and law students staged a protest in front of the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police in Pulianthope. Earlier, a police constable and head constable were placed under suspension in connection with the case.
It all started after Raheem, a fifth year law student was stopped at MR Nagar near Kondungayur for not wearing a mask. It is alleged that Raheem slapped a police constable during the argument that took place a the spot. The law student was arrested and was released on bail.

After releasing, Raheem released a series of pictures of his injuries, stating that he was badly beaten up by the Police officials. He said that the police officials kicked him with the boots and caused brutal injuries all over his body. Pictures of the youth’s injuries started circulating in social media platforms as a result of which two cops were suspended.

Reacting to the action, Raheem released a video saying that suspension is not enough for what he went through inside the police station. “Naseema mam was the one who is responsible for what happened to me. FIR should be filed against Naseema mam, Rudhra kumar and Bhoominathan” Raheem said in the video.
Sad to see, Policemen are not changing their way of approach in any government. Stringent action needs to be taken other than suspension. Then only none others will do the same again.

“Is suspension the only punishment for what they did to me ? No matter if I got beaten or made to remove all my clothes or died, they will only get suspended ? I don’t want them to be suspended for the sake of it. Strict actions should be taken against them. I am not going to eat or sleep until that. I died inside when they made me nude and humiliated. I want no one to go through what I experienced” he could be seen saying in the video.
