‘Anti-Romeo’ cop harasses girl in Agra, transferred
AGRA: A Mainpuri sub-inspector, Ram Naresh Yadav, was shifted to police lines on Wednesday after a video of him harassing a girl at a Lohia park during the ongoing anti-Romeo drive went viral.
Confirming the move, Additional SP Shishyapal Singh said a departmental inquiry has also been initiated against him. Action was taken against the SI after his video forcing a girl to pull her ears went viral on the social media.
In the video, the cop can be seen shouting at the girl and penalizing her by asking her to pull her ears. Another lady constable can be seen telling the girls to go home rather than roaming around in parks.
This harassment has come to light even as Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi has asked senior officials to chalk out clear guidelines for anti-romeo squads to ensure that the police did not act against boys and girls hanging out together with consent.
