Phagwara: The SHO of Phagwara city station was sent to police lines for allegedly misbehaving with a woman and taking her along with her children to police station without any lady constable accompanying them.
Phagwara City SHO Nirmal Singh yesterday allegedly misbehaved with the woman, manhandled her and pushed her and her two children into his official vehicle and illegally took them to police station, police said.
A video had also gone viral on social media, purportedly showing Singh misbehaving with and bundling the woman and her children into his vehicle.
Following a report by Phagwara S P Harwinder Singh Sandhu, who recommended disciplinary action against Singh for the “indiscreet act”, Kapurthala SSP Alka Meena yesterday dispatched the SHO to police lines, declaring that thorough investigation into the incident will follow.
Sandhu had sent the report after Congress activists, led by senior Congress leader and party’s nominee from Phagwara Joginder Singh Mann, had staged a dharna outside SP’s office last evening demanding action against the SHO.
Even a faction of BJP, led by Phagwara Block President Pankaj Chawla, had supported the protest.
Protesters alleged that Singh had raided the house of Vivek Chadha in Hadiabad sub-town yesterday.
Not finding Chadha at home, he allegedly misbehaved with his wife, manhandled her and pushed her minor son and daughter into his official vehicle and illegally took them to police station. PTI
