Meerut: Five-year-old girl offers her piggy bank to police as bribe

Lucknow: A five-year-old girl who went to a police station with her maternal grandfather Shanti Swaroop Sharma and uncle Rohit Sharma to meet IG Ram Kumar, offered her piggy bank to IG Kumar as a bribe.

The girl, Manvi told the IG: “Take this, but arrest those who forced my mother to commit suicide,” when asked what made her to bring her piggy bank, the girl innocently said, “Sab kehte hain ki paise ke bina kuchh nahin hoga (Everybody says that without money, nothing ever happen).”

Manvi stayed back in the room after her grandfather and uncle walked out and then took out her piggy bank from a bag and gave it to the official. IG Ram Kumar assured her that he would take action against those responsible for her mother’s death, and asked her to take the piggy bank back with her, reported DC.

As she started to go back, her piggy bank fell and got broken. Manvi sadly collected the coins in the piggy bank and started crying. Her uncle assured her that he would buy her a new piggy bank.

Manvi’s mother reportedly was married to Sanjiv Kaushik five years ago. Manvi is the couple’s only daughter. Soon after their marriage, Sanjiv had started torturing her for dowry, making her stay with her parents for the past four years. She had also filed a complaint against him, but nothing happened.
