The High Court on Friday directed the DG&IGP to suspend two sub-inspectors after a man was allegedly beaten to death in police custody.

The sub-inspectors in question are from Amrutur in Tumkur district and Koppa in Mandya district. Justice A N Sathyanarayana passed the order on a petition filed by one Channaiah, alleging that Amrutur SI Manjunath Hoogar filed a false domestic violence and dowry harassment case against his son Puttaswamy and later killed him. Channaiah said the SI closed the case after Puttaswamy died.

Puttaswamy was married to Dhanalakshmi in 2013 and earlier this year, Dhanalakshmi filed a domestic violence case against him. SI Hoogar has been accused of taking Puttaswamy to the station and beating him black and blue. Puttaswamy was taken to Koppa government hospital, where he died. But the plaintiff accused the Koppa SI of not investigating the case.

Justice Sathyanarayana also said the case should be handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
