Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Friday ordered a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the alleged manhandling of a government doctor by police in Visakhapatnam last week. Taking serious note of the May 16 incident, the high court directed that a case be booked against the policemen involved. It asked the CBI to submit its report to the court in eight weeks. The court delivered its judgment after taking into account the statement of doctor K. Sudhakar Rao. The court passed the orders on the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking probe into inhuman treatment of the doctor. Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader V. Anita had also written a letter to the court seeking a probe into the doctor's manhandling, arrest and admission to a mental hospital. The court treated her letter as a petition. (IANS)
