A Circle Inspector of police, Ramanjaneyulu, performing his duties at Pedakakani faced the wrath of residents for his alleged high-handedness in dealing with a restive crowd near the Ambedkar Centre.

The CI reportedly bashed up five youngsters in the police station even as the residents of several colonies staged a demonstration outside the station.

The CI was performing bandobust duties when he encountered a group of youngsters.

The police brought the five youngsters into the station.

Even as a group of 250 men and women gathered outside the station, the unrelenting police inspector thrashed the youth.

The crowd demanded that the youth should be released immediately and demanded action against the CI.
