Udupi, April 11, 2017 : Udupi District in-charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj has said that he wants the police to thoroughly investigate the case wherein one of his company’s employees teased a constable’s wife and also the case wherein the constable badly assaulted the employee resulting in damage to the latter’s spine.
Speaking to reporters here, Madhwaraj said there was no question of him exerting pressure on the police department to suspend the constable and added that as the assault by the constable had damaged the spine of the person accused of eve-teasing it has become a medico-legal case and the person accused of assault has to be suspended.
He also stated that he has no objection if his employee was punished in case the probe proves him guilty.
Admitting that the now suspended constable had approached his wife who manages his company seeking against filing a case, he was told that nothing could be done as the victim has been hospitalised.
Probe underway : A departmental enquiry is underway into the case of assault by the constable, while SI of women’s police station is investigating into the complaint filed by the constable’s wife Jyothi.
