Surkhet, June 3:

Two senior police officials severely beat up their co-worker on the charge of not sharing bribe amount in Bidhyapur VDC here last night.

Chief at Babiyachaur Area Police Office Chandra Dev Thapa and ASI Keshav Malla thrashed Sahabir BC, chief at Bidhyapur Police Post.

“Thapa and Malla came to my office in an inebriated state and beat me up, alleging that I did not share the bribe amount received after settling a case of villagers. But I didn’t take any bribe from anyone,” BC claimed. After the incident, locals took Thapa and Malla under control. They were released after a police team from Surkhet District Police Office reached the site today.

BC also demanded action against the duo. “I have reported the incident to DPO and I have been assured that action against the guilty will be taken,” he said.
