In a shocking incident, a lady Sub-Inspector slapped a woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh, according to Times Now report. A video aired in the channel purportedly shows the lady police officer thrashing a woman in full public view. It has been learnt the woman is a relative of an accused and was allegedly trying to stop the lady officer from leaving in her car, according to the report. The woman claimed that the lady cop was taking her kin into custody without relevant papers. The SI became enraged at this and manhandled the woman, the Times Now report says. A probe has been initiated to ascertain the exact details, according to the report.
As far as the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh is concerned, the BJP had earlier claimed that the morale of the Uttar Pradesh police had gone up ‘considerably’ since Yogi Adityanath took over as the chief minister of the state. Claiming that 670 criminals, carrying rewards on their heads, were arrested during the said period, state BJP spokesperson Shalabh Mani Tripathi said the police were now giving a “befitting reply” to the dreaded criminals, PTI reported on August 5.

“There has been a considerable increase in the morale of the police. There has been a transformation in the mentality of the policemen and they are giving a befitting reply to the dreaded criminals,” he said. Alleging that during the previous political regimes in the state, the anti-social elements “enjoyed the patronage” of the ruling party, Tripathi said, “They (the criminals) were confident that the policemen may keep on losing their lives, but they will not be able to face them.” The BJP, he added, had mentioned in its ‘Sankalp Patra’ (poll manifesto), that the criminals should either quit crimes or stay within the ambit of law or be ready to face the consequences. “The criminals, who used to roam freely during the previous regimes, are now themselves surrendering in court,” the state BJP spokesperson was quoted as saying by PTI.
