BENGALURU: An assistant sub inspector of police (traffic) slapped a biker and his son during an argument over parking the vehicle in a no-parking area on Tuesday. The biker has filed an assault case against sub-inspector Hanumantharaya, attached to Chickpet traffic police station.
A senior police officer said that Umapathy, an elderly man, had parked his bike in front of Sai Cafe at

Chamarajpet junction. The traffic police later towed the bike away. Umapathy and his son went to Chickpet traffic police station and argued with Hanumantharaya, claiming that the bike was not parked in a no-parking zone. The duo started quarrelling and Umapathy started recording the officer’s behaviour.

In a fit of rage, Hanumantharaya abused Umapathy and slapped his son repeatedly after pushing him into the station. People in front of the station also recorded the scene and sent it to some TV news channels.
Umapathy then filed a complaint with Chamarajpet Law and order police. Gangadhar, an eyewitness said, “Umapathy’s son tried to warn the officer when he was being slapped. When Umapathy tried to stop the ASI, he was also pushed.”
