Family demands immediate action against robbers, creates ruckus in police station
A Dalit family in Greater Noida alleged that police officers disrobed the family members, comprising two men and three women, inside a police station when they demanded registration of police complaint in a case of robbery near the police station.
The victims informed that the police persons also warned of facing dire consequences if they demanded penal action against the accused involved in loot. Meanwhile, the police officials claimed that despite registering the complaint, family created unnecessary ruckus by tearing their clothes.
As per the report, Sunil Gautam, a social activist and contractor by profession, along with his family, was on his way to Dankaur on Wednesday evening. When his car reached near the police station, a few people looted them on gun point. The family made a PCR call following which the incident was reported. The family then reached the police station demanding swift action against the accused persons. Police, then informed of registering an FIR also belonging to a Dalit family. SHO Dankaur, Pravin Kumar Yadav, was blamed of disrobing the victims. The family sat in protest inside the station premises seeking immediate action of the SHO.
“As police officials have been protecting the criminals, they are unwilling to initiate penal action. While opposing, they tore dresses of the family members,” said one of the victims. SHO, however, denied any such allegation. “As the case is related to arrest of SC/ST, top officials need to decide any move. Without having permission, we avoid apprehension and interrogation. Allegation of disrobing family members are baseless,” said Yadav in defence.
On the other hand, the PRO of Gautam Buddh Nagar Police informed that a case against Gautam and his family members has been registered under Sections 307,232,323,147,148,353,294,394, 7 for criminality and uploading nude pictures on social sites. “The cyber cell has contacted Facebook authorities and has requested them to delete the posts uploaded by them,” the PRO said.
