Thrissur: A senior civil police officer at the armed reserve camp in Thrissur has been arrested for beating up the deputy commandant. The arrested officer, Joshy, alleged that the superior has framed him in the case.
Joshy was arrested by the West Police after deputy commandant Radhakrishnan Nair accused him of beating him in an inebriated condition. Joshy was admitted to the district hospital after he collapsed from the shock.
The shameful chain of events started at around 1 pm on Monday when the deputy commandant went to the sub treasury at Chembookkavu for a routine inspection of security arrangements. Nair said that he could not find any of the cops assigned to the treasury but for Joshy, who was drunk inside the guard room.
Nair said that he informed the control room immediately but the angry subordinate abused him and bashed him.
Joshy, however, said that the deputy commandant never liked him and now he had found a means to get even with him.
