Kanpur | Provincial Civil Service (PCS) officers posted here today went on a strike demanding FIR against four police officials who allegedly manhandled one of the officers during an IPL match at Green Park stadium here.

32 PCS officers have stopped work in protest against the alleged incident of manhandling of SDM Sukhbir Singh by police personnel, ADM (Finance) Shatrughan Singh said.

Senior police officers have assured us that an FIR will be lodged against the accused policemen. If they take necessary measures, we will resume our work, he said. SSP Sulabh Mathur said no FIR has been lodged in the matter but the accused policemen have been suspended.

During an IPL match between Gujarat lions and Mumbai Indians on May 21, some police officials had allegedly manhandled SDM Singh, who was on duty during the match. Singh alleged that some police officials were trying to get their family members entry into the stadium without tickets. But when he objected a scuffle ensued between them. He accused the policemen of slapping him also.
