Negligent UP Police turns active after complaint on CM's Twitter page
Kanpur: The new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's seriousness towards his promise of providing adequate security to the women of the state was clearly evident here on Monday, as police took swift action on a complaint lodged on the CM's official Twitter handle.
A girl, daughter of a businessman in Ambedkar Puram region here, was consistently being troubled by a goon, who had also manhandled her, her father and sisters. On being approached by the girl, police lodged a complaint but took no action.
After the lodging of the case, the goon, named Sujeet, started to threaten the girl and her family of dire consequences if they refuse to withdraw the case. The girl also met the SSP to inform about the threats, but still nothing happened.
This inspired the girl to approach the newly appointed Chief Minister of the state, who has promised to better the law and order situation in the state.
In a few minutes after the complaint was lodged on Twitter, SP City West, along with CO City, reached the Kalyanpur police station. He called upon the girl and ensured her of strict action against the culprit.
This apparently is the first such case in the Yogi government where the UP police has come into action after a complaint on CM's Twitter handle.
