Viral: MP cops hit Covid-19 patient's family, 2 suspended

Apr 11, 2021 23:07 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Two policemen were suspended for beating up some villagers in Madhya Pradesh’s Khandwa district after an altercation broke out between health workers and the kin of a Covid-19 patient.

A team of health officials had gone to take the 20-year-old patient to admit him to a hospital but the family insisted that he be home quarantined.

The medical team complained that they were attacked by the family following which a police team arrived. They too were attacked and a sub inspector and an assistant sub inspector got injured along with two health workers.

A video of the incident wherein the police can be seen hitting a man and two women went viral on social media.

The incident comes days after two policemen in Indore were suspended for thrashing a man for not wearing a mask in public.
