Malappuram: A woman alleged that a group of cops under Manjeri sub-inspector misbehaved with her and family at Manjeri-Nilambur route on Friday night.
The complaint was lodged by Koomamkulam native Amritha N Jose. She alleged that a few cops arrived and started to inspect her car abruptly when she stopped the car to have tea.
As per her complaint policemen showered abusive words when the family enquired about the reason for the search.
Police seized the mobile phone of my brother when he attempted to shoot the atrocities of the police, alleged Amritha.
She said that another group of police rushed to the spot and dragged her and her brothers to the police station by force.
"My 10-year-old son was left alone on the roadside when they took us into custody. The police did n't allow me to meet my son till 3 am, she said.
Amritha and her brothers informed the media that they have lodged complaints against the police at Human Rights Commission, Women’s Commission, and Child Rights Commission.
Meanwhile, Manjeri police Inspector Riyas Chakeri alleged that the complaints raised against them are baseless. He said that the cops, who were on night patrolling duty inspected the car after finding them under suspicious circumstances. However, the family hindered the inspection and started questioning the police. Later, more police reached the spot to take them into custody. Amritha and others were released on bail after a medical examination shortly, said the inspector.
