Tarn Taran cops were caught on camera beating a young woman, who had come to them after being sexually harassed by truck drivers. She and her aged father were shown being beaten by cops after she called police for help. The incident was recorded by a bystander on his mobile phone on Sunday and was aired on news channels today.
The woman says, instead of helping her, the policemen took a bribe from the driver and started beating her. Despite the footage, a senior police officer tried to defend the cops involved. “I don’t think our cops did anything (wrong)… they were actually trying to intervene and stop the fight between two sides,” said Sukhbir Singh, who heads the local police station.
Four cops have now been suspended. Tarn Taran SSP, KS Dhillon had this to say, “A taxi driver had teased the girl, but when she, along with her father and brother, confronted him, a brawl ensued. When a police team tried to intervene, they misbehaved with the cops. But this does not justify the incident. We will ensure strict action against the policemen involved.”
We condemn the attack and are shocked at the behaviour of the Police. Irrespective of the situation or provocation, the police is their for the protection of the citizens and such behaviour must be severely punished.
