Sydney Constable Rahul Guru has pleaded not guilty to 3 charges including driving furiously causing injury.
9News reported that a former Sydney constable facing charges of police brutality has laughed off allegations.
It is alleged that Rahul Guru, 29, was driving recklessly to injure a suspected child sex offender who was in the back of a police wagon.
Rahul Guru appeared in Burwood Court on Wednesday facing three charges including driving furiously causing injury.
When he was asked outside court by reporters if he had anything to say to his colleagues, Guru replied “cops are tops.”
It is reported that in October 2015, Rahul Guru and a fellow constable, were called to Lidcombe Hotel to arrest James Ra for disobeying a move along notice.
Daily Mail Australia reports that Court documents allege that during the arrest Guru “slammed Ra's head into the back of the van.”
When James Ra was inside the van the violence continued.
It is alleged that under the assumption Ra was a child sex offender “Guru slammed on the breaks, laughed and sped up heavily.”
According to court documents the wagon “went from 101 kilometres per hour to just 8 kilometres per hour in a matter of seconds.”
James Ra was thrown around the van and hit his head causing severe bleeding.
Constable Rahul Guru's partner told the court he was forced to cover up the alleged brutality and made to give a false statement claiming Ra's injuries were self-inflicted.
