Police blinds girl

The young lady, who is been accused of habouring a land-litigation suspect is feared to have also been stripped naked and beaten in public by the police - a development which resulted in her collapsing on the spot. Sarah's refusal to release him to the police officers who were not in uniform, the sources disclosed, led to her assault, because “the policemen took her an accomplice.” The victim is currently receiving treatment from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region as investigations begin into the attack.
