According to sources, Krishna was stopped by the two constables just because his mask had slipped down his nose. The two then forced him to go to the local police station even as he pleaded that he was going to a hospital to meet his ailing father.
The two cops then beat him up and try to drag him to the police station. Moreover, Krishna’s son who stood beside can be seen crying and pleading with the cops to not beat his father in the video.
However, the police station said that Krishna had several cases against his name and he had first assaulted the two constables before they charged at him. A proper probe has been launched and necessary action will be taken accordingly, the police said.
