Emergency is not over yet for despotic para policemen
Lucknow: The action of some policemen here is a sad reminder of the emergency clamped 41 years ago. The policemen who can be mentioned in this regard are those who are attached to Para police station.
Believe it or not, officials of this station, instead of taking action against the culprits arrested the victim and his other family members. Like some draconian actions during those darks days, they acted at will, ignoring whatever has been written in the police manual.
Reason seems to be the culprits’ high connections. They were members of ruling Samajswadi party.
The story is like this: these “VIPs” misbehaved with a school girl belonging to a poor family. Her family members lodged a complain against them. But the police, instead of taking action against them, registered a case the girl and her family members. They were charged under different sections of the Indian Penal Code and sent to jail.
Later, the victims approached senior police officers who made an inquiry and found seven of them guilty. Seniors did not do anything praiseworthy either. They were approached soon after the arrest in March, but action was taken against them only this week, nearly three months after the incident.
