Trigger-happy cop exposes the rot in Haryana police

 Another example of worsening #law&order in the state

Friends, it is sad and extremely disturbing when law enforcers break the law.

A police officer posted in #Karnal, #Haryana is in the news for the wrong reasons. This officer used his service revolver to intimidate a doctor at a Karnal hospital; he actually shot at the doctor for not cooperating with him in preparing a fake medico-legal report for his relative. Call it luck or the grace of God, the doctor ducked in the nick of time and escaped getting shot. A CCTV footage of the drunk policeman shooting at the doctor immediately went viral, prompting widespread protests. The errant policeman was apprehended after a 12-hour-long drama but not before he made a mockery of the law and order machinery.

This incident raises some disturbing questions about the police force in #Haryana. In some ways, it is symbolic of the general decline in law and order situation in the state. Every other day we hear about cases of crimes against women … rapes … abductions … molestations … and murder. It comes on top of a series of scams and scandals that this government has been embroiled in.

A policeman abusing his power and authority to threaten and shoot at a doctor… IT CANNOT BE TOLERATED!!!! If police personnel themselves begin to break the law, and with impunity, then can anyone be safe anymore???? And won’t it further embolden the criminals???? Does this incident not highlight a widely-held view that evidence could be fudged to suit vested interests thus putting the justice delivery system in jeopardy????

There is also the larger issue of police reforms. WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT DOING TO BRING ABOUT MUCH-NEEDED REFORMS IN THE POLICE FORCE??? The people of #Haryana deserve to know!

Jai Hind.
