Bengal Cop kicks pregnant woman

A sub-inspector posted at Kashipur police station in Purulia has been accused of kicking a pregnant woman at Ketalkeyari village on Tuesday evening when he, along with three constables, went to arrest a man after reportedly receiving complaints of domestic violence.

Anil Malakar (35) was asleep when the police team raided his house. His wife Sita tried to stop them and was allegedly kicked in the stomach and chest by the S-I.

After police took away Anil, Sita complained of a severe stomach ache and had to be admitted to Purulia district hospital, where she is currently undergoing treatment.

SP of Purulia C Sudhakar brushed aside the allegation saying the woman was trying to stop the police from arresting Anil and fell down. "Police have nothing to do with her getting hurt," he said.

Police, including the SP refused to identify the S-I. Sources said the woman was warned by the police against filing complaint against the S-I.
