THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In an unexpected attack, Thampanoor Sub Inspector, R Sivakumar, was allegedly attacked by a person who then injured himself by cutting the vein of his left hand.
Police said that Jude Sajith, 44, who was summoned to the police station on Friday in connection with a
vehicle damaging case, attacked Sivakumar and then
injured himself using scissors which were lying on a table. Sivakumar injured his left hand following the attack.
Jude Sajith, who had taken the contract for parking in front of the Central railway station two months back, was summoned following a complaint from an autorickshaw driver.
The driver, Rajendran hailing from Thirumala, alleged in his complaint that his autorikshaw which was parked in front of the railway station was damaged by Jude Sajith.
The autorickshaw got damaged when Sajith tried to park it elsewhere. When he questioned Sajith about the incident, the latter’s behaviour was rude and he was not willing to give compensation.
Around 3 pm, the police summoned Rajendran for settling the matter. “While I was talking to them, Sajith was provoked and attacked me. It was unexpected. Then he cut his vein taking the scissors,” said Sivakumar.
Jude Sajith has been admitted to the General Hospital here. Police said that he sustained only minor injuries.
But there are allegations that the attack on the Sub Inspector is a cooked up story by the police. They physically harassed Sajith and it was in an attempt to escape from that, Sajith injured himself.
