American Cop who assaulted Indian Arrested, FBI Probe ordered


New Delhi, Feb 13: An American cop, who had ruthlessly assaulted the Indian national in Alabama for no crime, was arrested. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will probe the matter after India sought report from the US authorities.

The video showing the assault on the 57-year-old Indian Sureshbhai Patel, who was down and left partially paralysed, went on viral on the social media. In the video, two policemen were seen beating up Patel on road side.

However, only one has been arrested so far.

According to reports, the cop has apologised for his action and he was suspended following the incident, which triggered
protest by Indian government.

The US State Department has expressed strong condolences to the family for the assault.

Patel was left partially paralysed after the US cops forced him on the ground when he was walking down the sidewalk. The policemen acted immediately and took action on the basis of a report from a local resident that a suspicious person was looking into the garages of several houses in the area.

Patel was visiting his son in Alabama, but became the victim for no crime.
