PUDUCHERRY: Timely police intervention prevented a youth from indulging in ‘moral policing’ in Bharathi Park here on Wednesday.
The youth, identified as Suresh Kumar, came to the park with three friends. Suresh, a painter from Lawspet, noticed a young couple sitting in the park. Suresh asked the boy and the girl why they were there. The boy retorted that Suresh had no business to question them. Enraged, Suresh picked up a fallen tree branch and started beating the youth. Later he attacked the boy with his bare hands.
The news photographers and media men had gathered at the park just opposite the Assembly complex. After getting information from security of the Assembly complex, Grand Bazaar police reached the spot and intervened.
The police told Suresh Kumar that he had no business to take law into his hands and if he had any complaints, he should have informed the police. The police then took both Suresh and the college student to the police station.
