A Manipur police official was on Tuesday suspended for misbehaving with Senapati Trucks Driver Association while on duty.
According to an order by the Superintendent of Police, Kangpokpi district PH Maheshnarain, ASI Th Hitler Singh of Kangpoki Reserve Line DHQ has been placed under suspension with immediate effect until further order for misbehaving with the Senapati Trucks Driver Association while on duty on January 14 at 3:30 am.
In a shocking video, which is doing the rounds in social media, the ASI is seen slapping and kicking a man, continuously pushing him while the man calmly defended himself. The police officer even used (loaded) his service pistol threatening to shoot the man. While interrupted by another man, the police officer also pointed his pistol at the man who tried to intervene.

He will get his subsistence allowances as admissible under rule during the period under which he is placed under suspension.
