Two members of the Chennai Police were caught on camera smashing up a Honda Dio at the War Memorial. The video shows the junior officer smashing up the Dio with his lathi as his superior officer looked on without saying a word.
The incident which was caught on camera by a bystander at the Chennai War memorial. Rushlane claims that two police offers — a home guard and his senior officer, reportedly a Special Sub Inspector (SSI) from the Fort Police Station — vandalized the scooter in full public view. Not one member of the public came up to ask what was going on.
The video seen above, apparently surfaced on the interwebs last week and has since gone viral. With his senior officer observing from the driver's seat of the police patrol vehicle, the home guard goes about smashing up the Honda scooter without a care in the world.
He continues to vandalise the Dio smashing up various parts of the scooter including the lights, indicators and the instrument console. The home guard continues to go about wrecking the Honda Dio even as the owner of the scooter walks up to the vehicle. However, instead of arguing with the cops, the rider just gets on his scooter and rides off.
This is when the home guard notices the person filming the incident and informs his superior officer. Rushlane claims that the SSI demanded that video be deleted by the person filming the incident.
Rushlane claims that inquiries have revealed that the owner of the scooter had allegedly arrived in the area to purchase illegal drugs, which in this case was weed. While the rider may have been dealing with illegal substances and may have left the scooter parked in a non-conforming manner between two bins and a barricade, the action taken by the cops was both extremely heavy-handed and wrong. Both the cops involved are reported to have been suspended and a probe into the incident has been ordered.
