Two passengers yesterday told a court how they saw a man dragged off a minibus they were travelling on and kicked in the private parts by a policeman. Judge Richard Davies heard that on May 25 last year, up to three police officers stopped and boarded a public light bus near Sheung Shui, to seize Leung Yick-lung. Leung, 22, who denies car theft and blackmail, called the passengers as defence witnesses. Passenger Siu Chi-cheung, 51, told the District Court that after the officers revealed their identity, they 'pulled the arrested person [Leung] by his hair' off the bus. Chief Inspector Sin Wai-kwan of Sheung Shui police station was among the officers who took Leung handcuffed about 30 metres from the bus, the court has heard. 'The arrested man was on his knees, his head bowed, and a very fat officer used his right foot to kick his private parts,' Mr Siu said. Another defence witness, Tang Hoi-lun, 18, who sat behind Leung in the bus at the time of his arrest, said that after they reached the grass: 'Two officers stood next to the man trying to block our view and the fat man started to beat him. Prosecutor John McLanachan suggested the officer might have done this because Leung was resisting arrest. 'How could he resist arrest when he was handcuffed with his hands behind him, knelt down and head bowed?' Mr Siu asked. The trial continues.
