The Telangana High Court on Wednesday said that the recent Wanaparthy incident could not be attributed to the entire police department.
It also directed the state government to file a report before April 17 of this month informing it whether an FIR had been registered in the incident.
The Wanaparthy police had brutally beaten up a person in front of his son for allegedly violating the lockdown.
A division bench of the court passed this order in a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) alleging that six policemen had mercilessly beaten up the person.
The court took cognisance of a letter emailed by High Court advocate P V G Umesh Chandra. In his letter he urged the HC to direct the DGP of the state and the Wanaparthy SP to file an FIR against the accused police personnel.
The HC later adjourned the matter to April 17.
