Mumbai: A police officer has been caught on camera allegedly thrashing a woman inside the Kandivali police station here following which an inquiry has been ordered into the incident.
According to Rakesh Shetty, who captured the episode on his mobile phone camera, the incident took place on May 11 when the woman and her husband reached the police station for a complaint but the accused–sub-inspector Riyaz Mulani– refused to lend them an ear.
Although the couple have not yet sought any action against the officer, Shetty went ahead and complained about the alleged assault on the woman to Kandivali Police.
His video grab shows the police officer hitting the lady with a wooden stick inside the police station premises.
Shetty, a real estate professional happened to be present in the police station at that time for filing a complaint regarding the threats he is receiving from the underworld.

Meanwhile, DCP (Operations) Sangramsingh Nishandar said that ACP (Borivali Division) has been entrusted with the job to conduct an inquiry into the alleged incident.
