MYSORE: Two minor girls were allegedly assaulted by police officers in Periyapatna police station here on Thursday.

One of them, who belongs to a Scheduled Tribe, was allegedly kicked in the waist by a sub-inspector, while the girl who accompanied her was slapped by a woman police constable.

The girls, aged 11 and 15, had gone to the station to file an atrocity complaint against one Satish.

The incident shocked Deputy Commissioner C Shikha and the police department when they heard about it at the monthly public grievances’ meet at the DC’s office. Shikha asked SP Abhinav Khare to look into the matter urgently.

The victim alleged that Satish (17), also from a Scheduled Tribe, allegedly attacked her family in order to grab their 5.5 acres of land.

“We are a family of six. Our father Nagaraj, a mason, and mother Mahadevamma don’t have the courage to face Satish’s family, and are afraid to go to the police station. So, I went to file a complaint against Satish, who uses abusive language against my mother and me,” the girl said.

“I went to the Periyapatna station with a social worker and her daughter Sneha (name changed),” she said.  More: P5
