Words of Vignesh, brother of soldier Vishnu
“They were fooling everyone, including the media. They ruined my life and my brother’s life. The phone recordings of the call made by a policeman named Manikandan at the station are in hand. When I went to the station for bail, I backed out as soon as I came to know that it was a MADMA case. He knows that too.
On his way back from the station, he saw a mother who had an accident on the road and took her to the auto. We were harassed because a policeman who was present there had pointed out that other policemen had supported him in the problem caused by his drunkenness.
When he said that he was a soldier, he slapped Chetan’s cheek. The shirt was also torn. My phone was taken. Then he was taken to the SI and they also beat him. The policeman’s forehead was cut when both of them fell on the ground while beating the brother. Anish and CI Vinod came running and dragged Chetan’s body, locked his head, and took him to where there was no camera. Another policeman came and pointed at me saying that he is also there. Then the beating started. We were beaten like dogs.
SI Anish behaved like a pakka goon. Chetan’s scissor-pulling finger snapped. All four of my fingers snapped. Like the Kalapani movie, it was dragged in by the leg. Chetan was only wearing underwear. The woman was beaten in front of the policemen. When the brother asked for water while crying, despite being handcuffed I crawled away and got the water. Even the bottle had blood on it. He beat me again and again saying that you are the only one. It is people like these who give the entire police force a bad name.
The DGP Thiruvananthapuram has directed Range AG to seek a report on the incident. Two months ago, Saikan Vishnu and his brother Vignesh, a native of Karikode, were brutally beaten by the police and caught in a false case. The fabricated case was that those who came to bail the accused in the MDMA case beat up the police. But only transfer action has been taken against the accused policemen.
