Police officer accused of using force in dispute

A policeman and more than 10 of his accomplices appear to have savagely beaten a family in Takeo province’s Tramkork district after an argument between them turned violent on Sunday.

The officer and his posse attacked the five family members, aged between 30 and 53, with a gun, stones and sticks, escaping when district police intervened.

The family filed a complaint demanding $5,000 and legal action against the policeman. The police did not know the motive behind the argument. Nokorwat
