A chief judicial magistrate here has ordered inspector of the kotwali to register a case against eight police personnel and a homeguard after an advocate alleged that he was kept in “illegal confinement” and “looted” by them last month.
Complainant Anil Kumar Tewari alleged he was kept in a lock-up of Mathura Refinery Police Station and his mobile phone along with Rs 2,000 cash was looted by the police personnel and homeguard led by the SHO of the Refinery police station on April 17.
Tewari also claimed he was made to suffer because he had opposed alleged bribe-taking by a woman constable and a homeguard, who had come for medical examination regarding a case, in a district hospital.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Rajveer Singh has also ordered the Inspector of Kotwali to investigate the case after registering it.
“I was set free only when 25-30 advocates reached the same day at the Refinery Police Station and protested the illegal confinement,” the complaint claimed.
