Rajesh G, an IT trainer, who is lying in Fortis Hospital after a surgery in the leg, still shivers with horror each time he is reminded of the brutality he claims the Bannerghatta police heaped on him.

The slaps and thrashing with a cricket bat that broke his ankle bone is still fresh in his mind. However, the incident did not deter him from fighting for justice.

“All this because I asked the policemen not to beat up two people who were fighting in public. I was forced into an auto, and when I told the policemen not to treat me like an animal, they beat me more, saying they are animals,” Rajesh recounts.

“No one should undergo such trauma. Police do not have the right to take law into their hands. People should not fear the police. But I have decided to fight them,” Rajesh explains in a determined voice.

With the help of his friends, Rajesh lodged  a complaint with the Karnataka Police Complaints Authority on Tuesday.

However, Bannerghatta police inspector Kumaraswamy has denied all the allegations. The police said that on the day of the incident Rajesh was quarreling with two others, and he had even misbehaved with a woman. On seeing the police approach, he fled and fell into a ditch, and fractured his leg.
