TUTICORIN: Two policemen have been placed under suspension for stealing chicken from a poultry shop near Vilathikulam and for attacking the shopkeeper with a knife for taking up the issue with superintendent of police (SP) S Jayakumar. Special teams have been formed to nab the duo, who are on the run.
S Muthuselvan, 33, of N Vedapatti near Vilathikulam, owns Sathya Sri Broilers near the Kadalkudi police station. Close to midnight on August 16, head constable Balakrishnan, 41, and constable Sathish 28, attached to the Kadalkudi police station called up Muthuselvan and asked him for one kg chicken. His wife Jaya, who answered the call replied that he was asleep and the request could be fulfilled only in the morning.
The two policemen, who were in an inebriated condition, kept calling Muthuselvan continuously. The next morning, the shopkeeper came to know that the policemen had taken a chicken from the shop. He took it to the notice of the SP, who transferred the two policemen to the Armed Reserve (AR) unit on punishment duty.
Agitated over this, the duo in an inebriated condition attacked Muthuselvan on Thursday. The two also inflicted a cut injury on his thigh. Tense moments prevailed as the policemen attacked other traders who came to Muthuselvan’s rescue. The injured owner was admitted in the Vilathikulam government hospital.
Meanwhile, another policeman Balamurugan came to the spot and took Balakrishnan and Sathish in a car. Villagers resorted to a protest demanding the arrest of the policemen.
The Kadalkudi police registered a case against the errant policemen under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 427 (mischief causing damage to property), 506(ii) (criminal intimidation) and 294(b) (using foul language) of the Indian Penal Code.
