Punjab News: 2 policemen suspended for beating up a girl in full public view

In a fresh incident in Punjab, a girl and her father was beaten up by the Punjab Police. However, two Punjab policemen in Taran Taran have been suspended for beating a girl and her father in full public view.

It is said that the girl and her father was beaten up by the police after she went to them with a complaint of sexual harassment.

Reports have said that the Vice-Chairman, National Commission for Schedule Caste, Raj Kumar Verka, has also summoned the District Commissioner, SSP Taran Taran and IG of Amritsar range along with the woman and the family to Amritsar for a hearing at 12 noon.

Earlier, on Monday, visuals showed the women being beaten up by policemen in full public view.

Talking to media, the girl said, “My father and brother went to talk to the truck drivers who were harassing me. The policemen standing there asked what was happening. Once they learned what happened they took the drivers’ side and started beating us.”

The SP rank officer is now looking into the matter and will file the reports in a week.

Congress leader Sunil Jakhad said, “This was not an uncommon instance. “This is police brutality. There is no law and order in Punjab. Now (CM Parkash Singh) Badal has ordered an inquiry. Suspension and inquiry are not the cure for such things. It is just a reflection of how the Akali-BJP government is functioning. This is goonda raj in uniform.”

Talking on the same issue, Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi said, “The video is evidence. They have got proof. They can take suo motu action.”
