Apex court rejects Punjab probe report in woman assault case

The Supreme Court has rejected the Punjab govt’s magisterial probe report on assault of a woman by police at Taran Taran.

The apex court castigated the magistrate for saying police need to resort to lathicharge in such situations indicating that the girl and her father were the aggressors. The court also said it will look into the role of senior police officers in the state and the manner in which they handled the Taran Taran incident. SC said it will impose heavy cost on Punjab and Bihar governments for police assault.
