Youth ends life as cops   rough up his mother, ransack house

Wednesday, 28 July 2021 | PNS | Lucknow


A 22-year-old youth ended his life by hanging himself at his house after his mother was roughed up and their house ransacked by police over a brawl at a Covid vaccination camp in Ranchhad village in Baghpat.
Superintendent of Police of Baghpat, Abhishek Singh said that 10 police personnel from Binauli police station were removed and attached to the Police Lines.
As per reports, a local Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader’s son, Akshay (22) accompanied his 62-year-old mother Madhu to a Health department facility at Ranchhad village to get her vaccinated against coronavirus on Monday. When he urged the officials to give her the jab on priority considering her old age, an altercation ensued with the cops.
A cop on duty allegedly slapped Akshay and got into a scuffle. To “teach” him a lesson, the irked police personnel raided Akshay's house and broke chairs and a window of the car and also vandalised a tractor. When the women of the house protested, they were insulted. Akshay's mother Madhu, her sister-in-law Kamlesh and Dharamveer Singh of the village were taken into custody and dragged to the police station and a case was also registered against Akshay. Upset over the police highhandedness, Akshay ended his life by hanging himself at his home.
After the news of his death spread, local villagers staged a demonstration, demanding that a case be registered against the erring policemen. It was only after senior police officials pacified them that they allowed police to take the body for post-mortem at around 7:30 am on Tuesday.
On the complaint of Akshay's father, a case was registered against five policemen, including police station in-charge Chandrakant Pandey, SSI Udham Singh Talan, constable Ashwani, head constable Salim and constable Murli,under Indian Penal Code sections pertaining  to abetment to suicide and other relevant sections.
Later, 10 policemen were attached to the Police Lines with immediate effect. An investigation into the incident is underway and policemen in large numbers have been deployed in the village to maintain law and order.
Meanwhile, police inaction forced a youth to commit suicide inside the office of senior superintendent of police of Meerut on Tuesday.
Reports said that Devendra Singh of Sarai Kazi area under Medical police station had taken Rs 1 lakh from his neighbour 10 years back and had returned Rs 2 lakh yet he was being harassed by the neighbour who even threatened to auction his house to recover his money which as per him amounted to Rs 8 lakh.
Devendra contacted the local police and senior officers several times but failed to get any relief. Depressed with this, he went to the Meerut SSP’s office on Tuesday morning and met senior officers, including SP (Crime) and SP (Traffic) but they failed to get his grievance redressed. Upset with the police inaction, he consumed sulphas tablets after which the police shifted him to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. A case was registered and investigations were on.
