Mangaluru : "You Muslims always need Hindu girls ? Didn't you intend to take her to Ponnani for conversion ? Beef eaters like you should not be believed... Police  abused me  this way and then pushed me into the station godown where they  stripped me and thrashed me indiscriminately. They gagged me with socks and plastered my mouth, in the process three of their lathis broke, they also tortured by giving me electric shock."

This is how  Farveez alias Pachhu Bellare who was  reportedly subject to  atrocities by Subrahmanya police station personnel on December 21,  narrated his plight  to this reporter  at a private hospital in Mangaluru where he is admitted for treatment .

"No one should suffer the way I have suffered.  Those who tortured me are unfit to serve the Department.  Along with the cops two auto drivers too tortured me. All of them must get stern punishment,"  demanded Farveez.

Speaking to Vartha Bharathi, he said he produces  regional language albums and was in Tamil   film industry since two years. He also said that he knew the Mysuru based  actress with whom  he was seen in a  lead role in the film "Veruvathuli" set to be released soon. Farveez claims that the actress had asked  him to come to Subrahmanya where she had to offer  a Harake on December 20. "There is no affair between us. As she was a guest, I had picked her up from the Subrahmanya Railway Station and took her to the temple. Though she intended to  return the same day, as the pooja was not complete she decided to stay back. I asked an elderly couple at the temple premises to take care of her and returned home," says Farveez.

"The next morning she  telephoned me at 6.30 am, her voice was feeble and she  asked  me to come near the temple. However, when I went there she was nowhere, but an auto stopped near me and took me to the station  where I was tortured and attempts made to project me and the actress as lovers,"  he said.

He also alleged that  he overheard a cop speaking over mobile phone  and telling the person on the other end  to  dump him in a gorge  in Gundya.

"The police asked me to keep my mouth shut regarding the  torture lest I  would be projected as a terrorist who  had come to  plant a bomb in Subrahmanya. After I was released, I returned  home and remained silent. When the  video went viral the SP has suspended three but all of the accused must be permanently suspended," he demanded.

 " As I faced severe pain in my waist and leg  I got myself admitted to the hospital," he said and demanded stern  action against those who tortured him.
