Chikkamagaluru, Jun 2: The judge of the district first special additonal sessions court here has dismissed the anticipatory bail application filed by Gonibeedu police sub-inspector (PSI), Arjun, who has been accused of forcing a Dalit youth to drink the urine of another accused during the course of interrogation.
Arjun reportedly took away Puneet, who belongs to a Dalit community, on May 10 relating to a rape attempt complaint. Once they reached the police station, the youth was bound with a rope, and besides thrashing him, the sub-inspector forced Puneet to drink the urine of another youth who was in the station relating to theft charges, it was alleged. Puneet later had complained to senior police officers.
Western range inspector general of police had suspended the police sub-inspector concerned. A case of Dalit atrocity was lodged in Gonibeedu police station. As the case made state level headlines, the government handed over the case to criminal investigation department.
As he was facing the prospects of getting arrested Arjun had remained elusive. He had applied for anticipatory bail in the sessions court here through an advocate named Sudhakar.
