Kumar hails from the Baghpat district of west Uttar Pradesh and was posted at the Baheri police station in December 2019. A woman constable from his neighbouring district of Muzaffarnagar joined the same police station earlier this year in January.
Monu Kumar and the woman constable knew each other for a long time. They had been in a relationship for the past year, since before she got posted at the Baheri station. As both of them are from different castes, constable Chahal passed snide comments about their relationship which led to the brawl. Reportedly, the two cops got into a heated argument two days before the incident, however, the situation was pacified by other cops who were present inside the thana.
A probe into the matter has been lodged by the SSP Satyarth Aniruddha Pankaj. Constable Kumar and the in-charge of armory Manoj Kumar were suspended after the incident.
