THRISSUR: Enraged over his wife’s alleged illicit relationship, an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) on Thursday attacked a 33-year-old man with a sickle and inflicted serious injuries on him here at Kodakara.

While Jobish,of Thayyil House, Kodali, has been admitted to a private hospital with head injuries, the ASI Premlal, 48, who is attached to the crime records bureau, Thrissur, was taken to another hospital.

According to police,  the ASI had been bickering with his wife over her alleged affair. The ASI had asked the man to pull out of the affair or to face dire consequences and also warned his wife too to end the relationship.

He even registered a case against him at the local police station to dissuade them from pursuing with the relationship. But apparently they continued the promiscuous relationship and did not mend their ways despite his repeated warnings, the police said. Infuriated, the ASI visited the workshop of Jobish at Kodakara in the afternoon and picked up a quarrel with him over the issue. He then hacked Jobish with the sickle,  which he had carried along with him, and the man also reportedly hit back at the ASI with a hammer in a bid to escape from his attack. And both suffered injuries, the police said.

Though the man suffered a cut on his head, his condition is said to be out of danger. The police had registered a case against both the ASI and the man based on the directives of higher officials, said Sub-Inspector of Kodakara Police station.
