A constable was beaten up in the main market of Nahan town by traders when he slapped a fruit seller who allegedly refused to pay money to the cop. The constable, Jagat Ram, was allegedly inebriated and not in uniform when the incident took place. When other traders saw Jagat Ram beating fruit seller Irshad and calling him a "terrorist", they gathered in support of Irshad and beat up the constable. Later, they reported the matter to the police.
When contacted, Additional Superintendent of Police Bindu Rani Sachdeva said Jagat Ram was on leave and had been shifted to the Police Lines. She denied that the cop was inebriated and said on medical examination the constable was not found under the influence of liquor. She said it was unfortunate that the other traders attacked the cop when they could have reported the matter to the police.
She said trouble arose when Irshad demanded a higher price for fruit and said there was no complaint of demanding money from traders. She assured to look into the incident.
