“A police jeep stopped Shaijan at Aroor and the driver of the Aroor police station came out and smashed the side-view mirror (wing mirror) of our vehicle.
The officer then asked Shaijan to come out of the vehicle,” said Sam Thomas, managing director, Eben Telecom.
“Though Shaijan showed all the documents, including his ID card, the self-declaration form and the request typed on the telecom firm’s letterhead, the policeman did not listen and hit Shaijan below the knee with a rod.
“Though telecom has been declared an essential service during the lockdown, the police paid no heed,” he said.
Shaijan was taken to the Aroor police station.
