Karnal, February 13

Namrata Gaur, a member of the Haryana State Commission for Women, enquired about two cases here today. One case was regarding obscene messages to a 30-year-old by her brother-in-law and the other concerning an attempt to rape a 30-year-old in Bhusali village.

Gaur directed the police to register a case in connection with the first incident. In the second case, she recommended action against a woman ASI for leaving the victim abandoned on the road at night after recording her statement at the residence of a judge on February 5.

“I came here to investigate two cases. Both victims are relatives. I listened to their grievances. I found ASI Meena negligent as she left the attempt-to-rape victim abandoned on the road,” said Gaur. She was talking to mediapersons at the office of DSP Raj Kumar here.

Gharaunda DSP Verinder Saini told her that the police had registered a case against Pradhuman, Jasbir and Ajay of Bhusali village. Pradhuman is the husband of the victim’s niece.

He told the visiting panel member that SP Jashandeep Singh Randhawa had already directed him for an inquiry against ASI Meena for her behaviour.

“The police are here for the safety and security of the people. We cannot expect such negligent behaviour from a woman police official. I have recommended action against ASI Meena for leaving the victim abandoned on the road,” said Gaur. “I have to listen to the three accused, but they have not come,” she added.

Regarding the other case, she said a 30-year-old woman and her niece had filed a complaint regarding several obscene messages. Despite filing a complaint, no action had reportedly been initiated by the police. “I have asked the DSP to register an FIR in this case,” she said.
