2 Punjab cops, who trashed woman publicly, arrested today
Amritsar: Hours after getting a rap on the knuckles by the Supreme Court, the Punjab Police has arrested two constables (HC Devinder Kumar and constable Saraj Singh) who were caught on camera brutally thrashing a young woman last week. Supreme Court today rejected the Punjab government’s explanation on how it would investigate the erring police officers.
“Was she a terrorist? What will the inquiry do?”, asked the angry judges.
The Supreme Court also slammed the public asking, “What is the accountability of citizens? People were standing around…what were they doing? Are we becoming a senseless society? This happens every day in all parts of the country”
The two constables had, so far, only been placed under suspension after they were filmed on a cell-phone by a passer-by, mercilessly beating the woman in full public view in Tarn Taran near Amritsar. The video was broadcast on news channels. NDTV
