Policemen Beat Up a Woman Trying to File a Sexual Harassment Complaint
Tarn Taran, Punjab, March 05, 2013
A 23-year-old woman returning from a wedding was sexually harassed by a truck driver. When she went to complain to the police, instead of arresting the driver, four policemen began to beat up the woman. A passer-by captured the incident on his phone, which got the policemen in the video below suspended from their jobs.
With increasing rates of violence against women and an inept and corrupt police force, there is a lot of emphasis laid on “gender sensitizing” the police. Women who go to complain about dowry harassment, domestic violence, and rape are similarly harassed by the police. In many cases rape victims have been raped in police stations!
