Soldiers in Blantyre have severely beaten a civilian whom they accused of pummeling one of the soldiers.
According to reports, the civilian who resides in Chilobwe beat up the military officer at a drinking joint on Saturday.
The disfigured soldier then went to Chichiri camp where he somehow convinced his fellow soldiers that beating the Chilobwe resident was a good idea.
Just as they would when going for battle, the military officers on Sunday boarded their dreaded Tata Truck and went looking for the soldier beater.
They found the person and took him to Chichiri camp where they heavily beat him.
When they decided that it was enough, the soldiers took the man to Chilobwe Police and told the cops that he was a suspect who was caught beating a soldier.
But the law enforcers refused to keep the civilian fearing that he may die at the police station.
As we published the story, the soldiers had taken the man to Limbe Police.
