A video of a Goa policeman hitting a motorcyclist during the Janta curfew on Sunday went viral on social media, prompting authorities to set up an inquiry. The video, shot by a local resident near Marago’s Davorlim area, shows a policeman in plainclothes hitting a motorcyclist with a baton. Superintendent of Police (South) Arvind Gawas said: “The police personnel has been taken off duty there and shifted to a reserve unit till inquiry against him is complete.”              

While some netizens praised the policeman, others lashed out at what they claimed was high-handed behavior. Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar tweeted, “The Goondagiri of GoaPolice is exposed. This is humanly unacceptable. It is #JanataCurfew @goacm DrPramodPSawant must explain and act. I have reported it to @spsouthgoa and IGP. Police without uniform and mask. The collapse of Administration in Goa @INCGoa strongly condemns this act.”
