Berhampur, May 9 (LocalWire): Two Telangana policemen in plainclothes sustained injuries after villagers allegedly assaulted them in Ganjam district’s Patapur police station limits on Thursday.
As many as 11 police personnel came to Dengadi village to recover stolen cash and gold and arrest an accused who had robbed a house in Hyderabad.
The attackers allegedly broke the glass of one of the police vehicles and detained them for more than an hour.
Since the policemen were without their uniforms, the villagers allegedly assaulted them believing they were child-lifters.
Patapur Police rushed to the spot and rescued the Telegana policemen and admitted the injured to a nearby hospital.
Their condition is stated to be stable.
‘We rescued them but no case has been filed as the Telangana policemen didn’t lodge a complaint,’ inspector in charge, Patapur police station Ramesh Chandra Pradhan said.
With the help of the local police, cash and gold ornaments were recovered from the accused in Dengadi village, he said.
