IPS officer Ingit Pratap Singh’s thumb was today bitten by a woman during JNU students’ protest in Delhi.

New Delhi: An IPS officer’s thumb was bitten by a woman protester when he was pushing back agitators, who were trying to march towards the Rashtrapati Bhawan here on Thursday, police sources said.

The protesters had gathered after a call was given by JNU Students’ Union president Aishe Ghosh to march towards President’s House to demand the removal of University’s Vice Chancellor, M Jagadesh Kumar.

Ingit Pratap Singh, a 2011 batch officer, who is currently posted as the additional deputy commissioner of southwest district, was injured in the attack.

According to sources, Singh was trying to pull a male protester when the woman, in a bid to shield her friend, bit Singh’s left thumb.
