New Delhi: Two student activists of the All India Students’ Union (AISA) have said that women constables of Delhi Police repeatedly kicked their private parts for protesting near the residence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday (October 10). Mari and tore their clothes.
The two women activists were protesting against the incident of cart ramming of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh and were demanding the arrest of Ashish Mishra, son of Amit Shah’s junior Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra.
A victim has written extensively on social media regarding this matter, in which it has been claimed that she has been deliberately attacked. He wrote that around 15-17 people were protesting peacefully and were holding posters and placards in their hands.
He said that initially there were no women policemen and male protesters were brutally beaten up and then taken into custody.
The victim has written that an AISA leader was recording a scuffle with male protesters when a policeman snatched her phone. The two women then decided that they would not allow themselves to be detained until they got the phone back.
He said that due to this, the women policemen committed atrocities with him and dragged him for about 300-400 meters. Even after this, things did not work out, then a policeman tried to lift his kurta, then he was thrown in the bus and his private parts were attacked for about twenty minutes.
The victim told that the women policemen on duty treated her like this till she started crying due to terrible pain. In the midst of all this, the male policemen stood as mute spectators.
He said that the women policemen tried to take off their clothes and attack their private parts, so that they would surrender in shame.
This is not the first time that Delhi Police has done such an act. Even before this they have been adopting similar attitude.
Alam is that even after such torture, Delhi Police did not get him treated. The victim said that on the contrary, she had threatened to file an FIR if she raised her voice.
The victim, who wrote a Facebook post about the incident, also said that targeting women protesters is a new toolkit of Delhi Police, where vocal women are targeted “to show their status”. A lady policeman told him, ‘We will show you your status.’
The post was shared on Twitter by Kavita Krishnan, a women’s rights activist and secretary of the All India Progressive Women’s Association. Krishnan had demanded to take cognizance of the matter by tagging Delhi Police, Commissioner of Delhi Police etc.
He asked, ‘What would the police do on their premises if they brutally sexually assault the streets of India?’
Delhi Police has not yet given any reply regarding this matter. However, the victims have not yet lodged any official complaint as they are deeply hurt.
Kavita Krishnan said that she can go directly to the Delhi Police Commissioner regarding this matter, so that the matter is investigated and the truth comes out.
