A video of around 5-6 policewomen dragging a young girl at the Lalbaugcha Raja has left the viewers in shock and disgust. Maintaining law and order is a difficult task and the responsibility doubles up during the festivities. And it should not come as a surprise if the Mumbai police wanted to keep things in check at the landmark Lalbaugcha Raja during Ganesh festival. But what was truly shocking was the inhuman behaviour displayed by the women police who ganged up to mercilessly beat up a young girl from Mira Road. The video of horrific incident has gone viral, which clearly shows the brutal face of the Mumbai police.
The video surfaced two days earlier the Ganesh Visarjan showed around 5-6 policewomen dragging a young girl from the queue and simultaneously punching and slapping the lady. According to the reports, the girl was from Mira Road and just like thousands of Ganpati Bappa’s worshipers; she made her way in the front to get a glimpse of the Elephant god.
According to TV9, it is said that such incidents are quite a common sight every year. But one has to understand that several police women ganging up to beat up a helpless girl at a religious place will only shaken up not just her faith from the police but everyone who will witness such a sight. We are not blaming the police for their strictness in action but the conduct was truly bone-chilling.
