Border area development minister Siddeque Ahmed slapped assistant sub-inspector N Das on Feb 26 over an incident of road mishap.
The mishap takes place during illegal collection of money from truck drivers by the people in Karimganj district. The cops had forced a truck to stop resulting in an accident with another truck coming from behind. The minister, who was afterwards travelling on the route, ‘slapped’ the police officer holding him responsible of the mishap.
The AGP raised the issue in the assembly on Thursday when Governor JB Patnaik in his address persists on a pleasant relationship between police and public.
