A top police officer allegedly put five subordinates in lockup for two hours as he was dissatisfied with their performance.

In a video that is being shared widely on social media, five Bihar cops can be seen talking to each other inside the lockup.

The Nawada SP Gaurav Mangala, who was dissatisfied with the performance of three assistant sub-inspectors and two sub-inspectors, put them inside lockup for two hours on Thursday night.
However, when contacted by reporters, he said it was ‘fake News’. Senior officials did not comment on the matter despite several attempts to seek their reactions.
Bihar Police Association on Saturday sought a judicial probe into the incident.
The association’s president, Mrityunjay Kumar Singh, said in a statement that attempts were made to contact the SP, but he did not respond to repeated calls.
“We got the information soon after the incident took place at our Nawada branch and it is being discussed on WhatsApp groups of police personnel as well. Incidents like these are reminiscent of the colonial period. The incident is the first of its kind and could tarnish the image of Bihar Police. We demand a judicial probe and a thorough investigation of the CCTV footage,” he said.
“There are allegations that the SP is putting pressure on aggrieved persons to hush up the matter. Attempts may also be made to tamper with CCTV footage. A probe should be initiated at the earliest and an FIR should be lodged under appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code,” the association demanded.
