Traffic security camera footage from the road shows the police officer wielding a stick and ferociously targeting the man, identified as Rajesh, as the motorcycle passes by him. The policeman strikes the rider who isn't wearing a helmet. The biker manages to maintain his balance races away from the area. The bike is also seen carrying a pillion rider. The incident took place on Thursday.
The district's Superintendent of Police M Durai told NDTV: "We've suspended the SI and investigation is on. The youngster had reportedly provoked the police when he crossed this point earlier. We are probing everything."
