HYDERABAD: A police constable, who tried to check blackmarketing of the India-Sri Lanka ODI tickets, was thrashed by a group of youngsters at the Uppal stadium here Sunday. The constable Motilal was hospitalised with serious injuries and 10 accused were taken into custody.

Motilal, who was attached to the Uppal police station of the Cyberabad police commissionerate, was posted at gate no 3 and was part of the tight security ring thrown around the stadium for the Sunday match. “Motilal noticed two youngsters selling the  `2,000 tickets for `4,000 each to fans who thronged the stadium. He tried to catch the duo and snatch the tickets. However, eight others pounced on him and assaulted him,” DCP, Malkajgiri, Rama Rajeshwari said. Motilal fell unconscious. Other policemen posted nearby rushed to the scene and shifted him to a hospital where his condition is said to be stable. They also took into custody all the 10 accused.

Sources said minutes after the youth were apprehended, a few local netas approached the police with the request that they let off the culprits. However, the police slapped cases on the accused for assaulting the constable. This is the third such incident in the last one week in Uppal area.
