India Against Corruption activist Deepak Gadekar was assaulted by a Home Guard Shiva Gawde whom he had caught on camera while accepting bribe from bus conductors at the Mapusa bus stand.
Ironically police have refused to register a complaint of corruption against Gawde on grounds that being a Home Guard, he is not a public servant.
Gadekar said he had several hours of footage showing how even traffic police exploit the bus operators at the Mapusa bus stand,
India Against Corruption representative in Goa, Adv. Satish Sonak while demanding that Gawde should be placed under suspension immediately, has also asked that the entire traffic police force at Mapusa police station be transferred as they will not permit a free and independent enquiry in the incident.
