Two policemen who went to issue a summons to a man were allegedly detained unlawfully and manhandled by a group of men on Monday.

According to the police, the incident took place at evening when head constable Manje Gowda and constable Veerendra Simha of attached to Parappana Agrahara police station went to one Nagesh Reddy’s house to issue the summons at Singasandra.

Reddy, (65), had filed a complaint with the Parappana Agrahara police over a civil dispute in 2010. The police had filed a chargesheet in this connection. But the complainant Reddy did not appear for court hearings and the court had issued a summons against him.

On Monday, Reddy reportedly refused to receive the summons and his younger brother Manjunath, an advocate, after reading the summons said why the police were issuing summons in an old case now.

He also started abusing the policemen and as they questioned him, Manjunath and his relative Manjunath Reddy, along with his gang, dragged them inside the house and locked them up in a room. They tore their clothes and manhandled them, they added.

Gowda managed to contact thwe police station and informed about the incident. A team of policemen rushed to the spot and rescued their colleagues and arrested Reddy brothers. 

The Electronics City police are looking out for other accused Nagesh Reddy, Sampath and Raghu, who are absconding.
