Mahbubnagar: The alleged atrocities by Manuguru Sub Inspector on a farmer in Manuguru mandal of Mahbubnagar district forced the public to come on to the roads and stage protest by blocking the Jadcherla-Midjil Highway on Monday.
Sub Inspector Nagaraju who had spotted Buchhaiah, a farmer who was going to his farmland at 11 pm at night, allegedly verbally abused the farmer and without any reason hit the farmer with the butt of his gun and threatened to kill him for the simple reason of going to his field late at night.
The SI had hit the farmer with his legs and with the gun butt, causing injuries on the farmer’s body. Aggrieved over the behaviour of the SI, the general public, along with people’s representatives from Manuguru mandal, staged a protest and demanded that the SI be suspended and a case be filed against him for causing grave injuries and threatening to kill the innocent farmer.
