The Madha Police in Maharashtra’s Solapur district on Sunday, November 4, booked two of their own constables for the alleged murder of a tractor driver.

According to The Times Of India, Solapur’s additional superintendent of police Milind Mohite said that they are treating this as a case of custodial death and have handed over the investigation to the CID.


Allegedly killed for playing loud music

A police official posted at the Madha Police Station told The Logical Indian that the incident occured on Sunday evening. The two police constables were posted at the police outpost at Manegaon near Madha. A tractor driver, Pradeep Kute, who was carrying sugarcane, was allegedly playing loud music on his tractor, to which the two constables objected. They stopped Kute and asked him to stop playing music and allegedly beat him up. After an altercation, he added, Kute fell unconscious.

The two constables then took him to the hospital, where he was announced to be dead-on-arrival. The two constables have been identified as Dashrath Kumbhar and Dipak Kshirsagar.

While the case was first registered as an accidental death, Kute’s kin alleged that he was severely thrashed by the two police constables.  Not only did they refuse to accept his body at the hospital, but even staged a protest in front of the police station demanding the arrest of the constables.

Kute’s family filed an FIR and after public outcry, the police booked the two constables under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code. However, the police officer informed that the post-mortem report is still awaited.

Kute, who was in his 20’s had reportedly travelled from his native place at Songiri village in Osmanabad district to work with his family during the sugarcane season.

While the cause of death can only be ascertained after the post-mortem report, The Logical Indian community urges the authorities to look into the case and take action against those who are found to be guilty.
