Odisha Cop Suspended For Thrashing Youth In Bhadrak

Bhadrak: A constable was suspended for allegedly thrashing a youth in full public glare near Banta police station in Odisha’s Bhadrak district on Monday.

Bhadrak SP Rajesh Pandit ordered for his suspension after a video of this incident went viral on social media.
