The video of Mumbai car towing incident is going viral on social media. In a totally heartless move, Mumbai policemen towed a car while a woman was breastfeeding her seven-month-old baby inside it. The incident invited widespread condemnation, which prompted the police to suspend one of its constables and order a probe. The incident which took place in Malad was captured in a video. An inquiry has been ordered into the incident, which took place at Malad in the western suburbs of the city on Saturday around 4.30 pm.

Here is what reportedly happened:-

The video shows that the policemen did not stop and continued speaking on the mobile phone even after the onlookers protested and warned that something untoward could happen to both the woman and the child. The woman alleged that she pleaded with the traffic policemen to stop but they did not listen to her and appeared unconcerned about her safety and that of the baby.

VIDEO of the incident:-

Reportedly, the woman had gone to Malad for some work with her husband and the child and parked the car on the busy S V Road.

As the car was obstructing the vehicular movement, the traffic police arrived at the spot with a towing van.

When the van was about to leave with the car, the woman sat inside the vehicle with her baby, an official said.

Police requested her to step out and officials from the Malad Police Station were called in to tackle the situation but to no avail, the official said.

The video shows the woman and her baby sitting on the rear seat of the car and the traffic police towing it away.

Onlookers, who can be heard shouting and protesting against the police action, asked constable Shashank Rane, who was accompanying the towing van, to stop it.

The video clip also shows the woman shouting at the police and telling them she was unwell and feeding her child.

The official said the couple was taken to the police station where the woman’s husband paid a fine for unauthorised parking and the issue was sorted out.

The DCP (Traffic), western suburbs, has been asked to conduct an inquiry into the incident and submit a report by tomorrow, said Amitesh Kumar, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic).

It has been prima facie noticed that safety of the woman and the child were endangered in the incident. Hence, pending inquiry, the constable is being placed under suspension, he said. A decision about departmental action against him will be taken after the report is received, Kumar said.

    The police was doing his duty. It is very unfair and shameful to punish a person, who is performing his/her duty. Before taking any action against the police officer, authority should confirm whether the car was in parking zone or not.

        How stupid can people be? First they park at no parking, block the whole traffic, intimidate an officer on duty and worst of all in spite of being on wrong side of law, refuse to comply and by sitting in a vehicle that is being towed away put the safety of their own child in danger.... Only so that they can save some money on fine...absolutely no respect for law and no concern for safety of their own child pathetic people...this child should be taken away from them.. it is not safe with them

          If what the report says is correct, it is shameful that the woman chose to sit inside the car when it was about to be towed. It was clearly her intention only to prevent the car from being towed. She is very clearly an offender of low ethics subjecting herself and her child to danger. The family should be severely punished and the cop should be rewarded for the prompt action and sticking to his duty and not subjugating to offender's tactics to stave off due police action. We need such strong police officers like Shashank Rane if the menace of offenders is to be tackled.
