Bulandshir: A video of a woman police officer who confronts a mob of BJP group has gone viral where she is reminding him everybody is equal before the law and that she will not have it any other way.
The Circle Officer (CO) Shreshtha Thakur from Bulandhsir in UP took a stand against angry BJP workers who were raising slogans against the police and also misbehave with her.
The cop is heard saying “she will add additional sections for creating public disorder” and also arrested one of the party workers for driving without necessary documents along with a challan issued to him.
“You please go and get written orders from the Chief Minister that the police have no right to check vehicles… that we can’t do our job. Hum raat mein parivar ko chhor ke duty karte hain, maze lene ke liye nahi (we leave our families at home at night not to have fun but to do our job)” says the CO to the group strictly.
She further says “You (BJP workers) are bringing a bad name to your party… people will soon start saying that you are BJP’s goondas.”
The incident took place on Friday after one of the BJP worker’s Pramod Lodhi was arrested for not having proper documents for his vehicle. The group started raising slogans outside the court where Pramod was produced. Among the workers, one man is seen arguing with the CO claiming that Pramod was arrested he refused to pay Rs 2,00o bribe to a police officer and that the Police has issued thousand of challans to many but only he was arrested.
In a similar incident, another woman police officer Charu Nigam broke into tears after she was threatened and shouted by senior BJP leader and Gorakhpur lawmaker Radha Mohan Das Agarwal a few weeks ago.
The IPS then was trying to control the protests which was about banning liquor where many women blocked a road demanding the same.
The leader Mr Agarwal reported shouted at Ms Nigam, saying, “Main aapse baat nahin kar raha hoon… mujhe tum kuch na batao. Chup raho tum! Bardasht ke bahar mat jao (I am not speaking to you. Don’t tell me anything. You keep quiet. Don’t cross your limits)”.
He, later on, justified his statement by saying he got furious with the Police’s treatment towards women protestors especially against pregnant and old women who were protesting that day against sale of illicit liquor, NDTV reported.
