Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court directed the police to pay a compensation of Rs 3 lakh to Advocate Kuldeep Shetty in connection with the assault case.
Kuldeep Shetty had filed a petition to take action against Punjalakatta sub-inspector K.P. Sutesh for assaulting him.
The single-member bench of Justice Nagaprasanna ordered the State Director General of Police to undertake a departmental investigation into the guilty police officer and personnel, and produce a report within a month.
The Punjalakatta police’s actions have drawn harsh criticism from the court, which argues that they do not have the authority to intervene in civil litigation.
