August 25, 2006 20:38 IST
Deputy Superintendent of Police F K N Kujjur confirmed Mokhey's hair had been cut but denied that it had happened while he was in police custody at the Olidih police station.
Kujjur said an inquiry would be conducted to unearth the truth and the guilty would be punished. Sardar Shailendra Singh, president of the Central Gurudwara Prabhandhak Committee, protested the incident and led a delegation to Supeintendent of Police Ashish Batra to demanding action against those responsible.
Denying the charge, the officer-in-charge of Olidih police station, N N Pandey, told reporters that Mokhey was trying to falsely implicate him as he had refused to provide him better facilities in a court cell when he was facing trial in a murder case in the past.
