Two constables made to drink urine in Meghalaya


Shillong, Aug 11: A battalion instructor in Meghalaya Police was removed from duty after he allegedly forced two recruit constables drink urine of fellow trainees. Police sources said this on Saturday. The incident took place in the 2nd Meghalaya Police Battalion in Goeragre, located about 300 km from the state capital, in the West Garo Hills district.

It is learnt that the duo had fought with another recruit during lunch time at a community kitchen on Friday and later during the night roll call, the instructor allegedly asked three trainees to urinate in bottles and forced the duo to drink it. The incident occurred in the presence of some 600 constables, an official said.

The state police authorities replaced the instructor and sought an explanation for such action. A top official of the battalion said such action was unacceptable. "The constables could have been punished by making them undergo an extra drill," he said.

A probe has been ordered into the incident.

Last month, two school students were made to drink urine by a hostel warden and teacher, in West Bengal and Tamil Nadu, respectively, for petty reasons.
