A disturbing video of Uttar Pradesh policemen was posted by NDTV this morning. In the video, we can see police officials raining lathis on women and shouting abuses.
Twitter users were prompt to outrage calling it a violation of human rights, particularly since women were involved at the receiving end. Some netizens also called UP Police as gundas.
UP Police Clarification:
The video is from Jalalpur in Uttar Pradesh’s Ambedkar Nagar district. The police were acting against women protesting over the vandalism of a statue of BR Ambedkar in the area recently. The protests set off a dispute over the land on which the statue stands.
The police claimed they used “minor force” after the women started throwing stones at them and their vehicles.
The police clarified that a group of women were protesting at the spot on Sunday when the police arrived to disperse them. According to the police, some of the protesters started throwing stones at the cops, including a senior officer.
In another video, some women were seen attacking and pulling at the hair of female police personnel.
Senior Ambedkar Nagar police officer Ajit Kumar Sinha informed media,
During the chaos, some protestors also attacked and vandalised a police car. We then had to use “minor force” to bring the situation under control.
The other side of the story was later updated by NDTV.
Should police not take any action because trouble makers are women? Did UP Police do the right thing? Leave your comments below:
