A sub-inspector on Saturday broke the typewriter of an elderly man by kicking it at Lucknow’s posh Hazratganj allegedly to remove encroachment from the area. A native of Gomti Nagar in Lucknow, 65-year-old Krishna Kumar has been sitting outside the GPO with his typewriter to earn his livelihood for the last three decades. Pradeep Kumar, who was later suspended after photographs — clicked by a photojournalist while passing through the area — of the incident went viral on the social media, was the in-charge of the Secretariat police outpost under Hazratganj police station.
