Abraham Lincoln, once said, “I learned a great many years ago that in a fight between husband and wife, a third party should never get between the woman’s skillet and the man’s ax-helve.” A police man, who tried to mediate between the two was left with sore lips and bloodied nose. The episode began when a 30-year-old man walked into the Shipra Path police station and asked the police officials to lock him behind the bars. “I want to go to jail…I beat my wife. Please lock me up,” Yogesh Golya urged the officers, who were at a state of shock. His wife has also gone to the police station to lodge a case against him, as per Hindustan Times report.
A Mansarovar ACP Deshraj Yadav tried to calm him down by putting an arm on Golya’s shoulders. But “Golya suddenly punched the ACP on his face. As a result, the officer was injured. Blood started gushing out of his lips,” Mukesh Choudhary, station house officer, Shipra Path police station, was quoted as saying by HT.
Golya, who owns a shop in the Walled City, had a marital discord with his wife, police said. “His wife too had come and both wanted to lodge cases against each other. The man kept on saying that he wanted to go to jail. He looked very troubled and also confessed to have had beaten his wife,” the police officer added. Choudhary said: “After assaulting the ACP, Golya looked calm and said that now, finally, he would go to jail. He kept on saying that he is very much troubled because of his wife.” The police have arrested soon after the assault on the officer. The injured police official was immediately taken to a nearby hospital and is reported to be safe.
