The couple got into a heated argument with the team, following which they were allegedly thrashed and taken into custody, the police said.
Dhan Singh and his wife were taken to the police station where they were allegedly thrashed again, booked under various sections of the IPC and arrested, they added.
Manju raised the matter before Vaibhav Krishna on Thursday after getting bail, following which the trio was suspended.
