Cop abuses 65-year-old typist

Lucknow:  It was just another day at work for the 65-year-old typist Krishna Kumar on Saturday morning. But then, Sub Inspector Pradeep Kumar reportedly asked him to vacate the spot.

For the last 35 years, Krishna Kumar has been sitting outside the General Post Office in Lucknow, barely earning Rs 50 by typing in Hindi on his old typewriter.

When Kumar, who works at the same place some 10 hours a day, protested, the SI abused the elderly man and kicked the typewriter repeatedly till it broke into pieces.

The brazen cop, undeterred, then reportedly bragged in front of local reporters who caught the incident on camera.

After photos of the incident went viral on social media, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday evening ordered the suspension of the sub inspector.

He also immediately ordered the District Magistrate and Senior Superintendent of Police to visit Kumar and hand him two new typewriters.
