The purported misbehavior of Police Constables resulted in a harsh protest in-front of the Ghantagar Police Station in the evening today when a case was registered against Farukh, Constable and Madan Lal Verma, Head Constable, Ghantaghar Police Station.
Pallav Shrimali (18), who is also a relative of Dinesh Shrimali, Councilor, Ward No. 13; accused Farukh and Madan Lal of harassing him in the name of checking, manhandled him and dragging his bike to the Police Station with no reason.
In words of Pallav, while he was returning from Dudhtalai; Farukh stopped him by way of checking and asked for his licence. Meanwhile when Pallav was showing him the license, Madan Lal came from behind and slapped Pallav. He asked for the reason, and also gave reference of Dinesh Shrimali.
Madan Lal kept bad mouthing and asked him for Rs. 500 as penalty and while Pallav refused; they dragged his bike to Ghantagar Police Station.
Hearing the same, family members along with Dinesh Shrimali and other Congress party workers came in huge numbers in front of Ghantagar Police Station. All resisted and demanded to suspend and transfer Farukh and Madan Lal to Police Lines.
Tejraj Singh, Additional SP; Dayanand Saran, DYSP, SHO Ghantagar Police Station; SHO Ambamata Police Station were present on the scene and tried to sort out the matter.
The heat subsided when Farukh was suspended and transferred to the Police Line after complainants registered the case against the Constables. Tejraj Singh, Ad. SP assured that he would be looking into the case, and if Madan Lal was found guilty, then he would also be transferred with immediate effect.
