Coimbatore: An Assistant Commissioner of police here was transferred after a video footage purportedly showing him inappropriately touching a woman sub-inspector went viral on social media.

An order was received by city police to 're-direct' the ACP, Law and Order (Central), to the Director General of Police Office Vacancy Reserve for facilitating "a proper and fair enquiry," an official release said on Wednesday night. The alleged incident occurred during the course of an arrest process (during a protest by students) on September 4 evening and it virally spread in the social media, it said. Also, a charge memo under the relevant rules had been initiated for serious delinquency against the ACP, the release added.

In the video, the ACP was purportedly seen inappropriately touching the woman SI under the pre-text of controlling the students protesting against National Entrance cum Eligibility Test (NEET).

Earlier, a delegation of All India Democratic Women Association (AIDWA) here submitted a memorandum to City Police commissioner, Dr A Amalraj urging him to take stringent action against the official for 'misbehaving' with his colleague in full public view.
