Two women were beaten by male traffic policemen at night near SG Highway Gurudwara and arrested at night. The High Court took serious note of the matter and expressed displeasure and directed the city police commissioner to conduct an inquiry against the police personnel.
Eventually, Commissioner of Police Sanjay Srivastava directed Traffic DCP Tejas Patel to investigate the matter. The police have been activated and the probe is in full swing as the investigation report is to be submitted in a sealed cover by February 25.
In the case of two women being beaten by the traffic police, The High Court said that it was not appropriate to beat women in public in such a manner as breaking the signal at night or entering a no-entry. HC expressed displeasure over the arrest of women in traffic and brawling offenses despite the law that does not allow women to be arrested at night except for serious offenses. The whole police force is discredited because of these cases. There are good police officers in the police department who work day and night for law enforcement without joy, but the whole force is discredited because of some police personnel.
The policemen were trained to talk to the general public easily and instinctively, the people who are paid by the police, and the high officials made a concerted effort to prevent the police from misbehaving. But all the efforts went in vain and in the end it is the turn of all the policemen to suffer because of some ordinary policemen.
DCP Tejas Patel explained about people’s rights, He said “Ordinary people have basic constitutional rights, but if the police stop them, you can stop them.” If the police suspect that it is genuine or counterfeit, you can only see their iCard. If the driver does not have a license, RC book, insurance or vehicle documents, the police may ask for time. The police can give 15 days to the driver of the vehicle however will give notice for it and within 15 days the documents can be shown to the police station or office. But if after 15 days the documents are not received or even if there is no document then the police can take legal action against the driver. In the 2019 amendment, the police can now demand PUC from the people.
