"While he was checking the beds of the inmates, Hambir started shaking up the linen rapidly. Pisole asked Hambir to shake the linen slowly as dust was dislodging. Hambir got angry and with the help of other three accused, assaulted Pisole," the officer added.
Police said a case under section 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharging his duty), 323 (punishment for causing hurt) and 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) of the IPC was registered.
