Many steps are taken to improve the image of the police, many promises are made for women safety. But this is the black era going on for humanity and that could not be helped. From time to time some policeman’s acts of violence have raised the embarrassment to the entire department. Such an incident was encountered in Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow when a college girl accused a constable of misbehaving with her and sending her vulgar messages.
During a program organized at Jaipuria College under the Women’s Security Week campaign, the atmosphere became tensed when a student opened a book of filthy acts of a soldier in front of the SSP Deepak Kumar. Not only this, she also kept the Whatsapp messages sent by the constable in front of everyone where he sent her good morning message and selfie of the girl.
On the order of DGP, the district police is celebrating Women’s Safety Week in Colleges under the leadership of their DM. On Friday, the SSP Deepak Kumar was addressing the audiences while rendezvous with students in Jaipuria Institute of Management. Meanwhile, a girl asked the question to the SSP, saying that she is asked to raise the voice of exploitation and seek help from the police, but when the police come on indecency, where do we go? This question by the girl shocked the SSP Deepak along with students sitting there.
As per the reports, on 5th November, the girl was hanging out with her male friend near Gomti Nagar Railway Station after a college party. A policeman came and asked them what they were doing there at this point of time. After so many questions he took the girl and her friend to the police station at night, that too without any lady constable. The girl was set free by 12 at night where as her friend was under custody for the whole night. And the reason was not even considerable. The girl further stated that the policeman came with his bike and started to misbehave with both of them and snatched their mobile. He kept on bothering them by asking irrelevant questions. He then called a fellow constable with the car and took them to the police station. And the most disgusting thing was that there was no lady cop to accompany the girl. The accused released the girl after one hour whereas the boy was released next day. The girl further added that he (the constable) charged her friend Rs. 3500. He sends her messages and pics every day.
The constable is identified as Gaurav Pratap Singh. This is not the first incident when such matter came into the light. Matters like this were reported by Avadh Girls Degree College and AP Sen college. SSP has said that an investigation would take place and strict action would be taken against guilty. Let’s see how much this helps.
I never knew hanging out with friends is a crime in the eyes of law. Abusing and torturing someone under the name of law and rules is not acceptable. Do you think this kind of attitude of police towards common people is right? Is police ensuring women safety like this? Share your views below in comment section.
