A Mumbai police constable was arrested Friday for allegedly creating ruckus at a police station in neighbouring Thane, a senior official said.
Constable Mahadeo Kamble (29) had reached the Kolsewadi police station in Kalyan here after his wife arrived there to file a complaint against him, Thane police spokesperson Sukhada Narkar said.
The accused's wife told Kolsewadi police that he used to assault her after getting drunk, the official said.
"The accused came to the police station and started abusing personnel who were attending to his wife's complaint. He broke the jaw of one of the personnel on duty. He has been arrested and a court has remanded him in judicial custody," the official said.
Kamble is attached to Shahu Nagar police station in Mumbai, the official said.
