Cop’s pistol missing since Delhi clash

New Delhi, November 7

A woman officer was allegedly harassed during the Tis Hazari court complex clashes and a loaded pistol of a woman constable has been missing since the violence last week, sources said on Thursday. Police are probing both the cases.

In the Saturday clashes, at least 20 police personnel and several lawyers were injured. CCTV camera footage is being examined and appropriate legal action will be taken in the woman officer’s case, the sources said. 

In one of the many videos that surfaced following the incident, lawyers are seen purportedly harassing the woman officer, who is flanked by other police personnel and trying to control a group of lawyers. Later, she can be seen running, with some lawyers trying to catch hold of her while some policemen try to shield her.

Meanwhile, two IPS officers have been transferred on the Delhi High Court’s direction. Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) North Sanjay Singh has been transferred to the licensing and transport department and ADCP (North) Harender Kumar Singh has been appointed DCP, Railways. — PTI
