RSS leader’s assault in custody: MP govt demotes 3 cops, withholds hike of another

Nearly two years after an RSS pracharak was allegedly beaten up in police custody in Baihar town of Madhya Pradesh’s Balaghat district, the state government has demoted three police officers and withheld one pay increment of an Additional SP-rank officer.

RSS Zila pracharak Suresh Yadav was arrested from the organisation’s office in Baihar town on September 25, 2016, after a group of Muslims lodged a complaint against him, accusing him of making a remark that hurt their religious sentiments. In a complaint lodged later, Yadav had alleged that he was beaten up and tortured in police custody.
