Vijayapura: Cops in civil clothes harass family on highway, snatch reporter's phone


Daijiworld Media Network – Vijayapura (MS)

Vijayapura, Aug 1: In a shocking incident that took place here, members of a family who were on their way to a temple were allegedly harassed by police donning civil clothes.

Parashurama and his family were on their way from Golasangi village of Basavanabagewadi taluk to Vijayapura in their own truck. They were stopped by police in civil clothes near Koodagi village on the highway. Though the police did not find any illegal things in the truck, they allegedly abused the family members using filthy language.

Parashurama's brother tried to make a video of the incident. The police grew angry at this and tried to snatch away his phone and seize the truck. Parashurama claimed that the police tried to move the truck in a hurried manner, and if he had not moved quickly, he would have come under its wheels.

In addition, the mobile of a reporter of a media house, who was video recording the incident, was allegedly snatched by the police.

There are also accusations that the policemen involved in the incident do not wear uniform and stop vehicles on highways and threaten the commuters with plastic pipes in their hands.

    These Khaki uniformed people need to be dealt severly. Post their photo's on the news paper and suspend them from duty for harassing the general public. No matter what. Whichever political group they belong, they have no right to harass general public for their hafta. It could happen to us, if we keep quiet on such social issues. People should unite and bring the whole incident to the notice of higher authorities, rather than comparing Karnataka to UP, Mumbai or Delhi. We should be humans first, and later a party supporter. if the first one fails, scond reason doesn't hold good. Jai Hind

    shame on to these police, who are supposed serve public, as civil servants. This is the reflection of their senior officers who these police report to, along with these police who got down so low, their bosses must be punished too. This is a 21 century India, and we haven't brought in civility to our police, either they are controlled by political bosses, or get misguided by their own bosses. Sad state of affairs. In my opinion police chiefs must report to judiciary not political bosses. as they can be manipulated easily by the political heads. Time to re-think and act.

    Even KG classs children are given id cards to display. But the “exam cracking” IPS and IAS have still not thought of issuing id cards to their staff to display conspicuously. Uniforms and name tags can be hired from any theatre dress shop. Conmen and thieves must be having their own resources. All govt. employees from top to bottom,most particularly the police, must carry id cards conspicuously displayed and produced to any citizen who wishes to verify their ID. The id cards must have printed on it: ID number, the name of the person ,designation and a unique QR or bar code that can be scanned by the citizen on a smartphone etc. The scan must produce details of the name, id card no, current office of employment and 24hr toll-free number where the citizen can call and verify the ID details of the employee. The toll free number will be helpful also to those who cannot afford a smartphone or those who cannot access internet.

    If you think covering up the dead bodies and giving fake count of covid deaths, if you think atrocities against the people and if you think a dictatorship are all part of the UP model then, to hell with it. India is for everyone and doesnt belong to Modi or Yogi or Shah. It belongs to every single person who is our citizen and who contributes to the growth of this beautiful country, irrespective of caste creed and culture.
