Waswa said that the police officer tortured him by beating and pressing his private parts to the extent of rupturing one his testacles.
According to eyewitnesses, Waswa was beaten by the officer when he was already handcuffed and prompted them to make an alarm so that the 26year old man is rescued.
“It was after the gathering of the residents who started knocking the door asking the officer to open the door in the scuffle he shot in the air to disperse the angry residents and they drove Waswa to Kiyindi police station” said the residents.
