A policeman jabbed a key into the forehead of a man after an argument over not wearing a helmet, in Rudrapur area of Uttarakhand late on Monday evening.

DG (Law and Order) Ashok Kumar said three police personnel, including a sub-inspector, had been suspended.

Dipak, a resident of Rampura area, was going to a petrol pump on his motorcycle with his friend Prem Prakash around 8 p.m. when the police stopped them at Indira Chowk for not wearing a helmet. There was an argument between Deepak and the policemen, one of whom pulled out the motorcycle key and jabbed its tapering end into Deepak’s forehead.
