An FIR was filed on Sunday against the residents of Park View Residency for blocking traffic to protest against issues they have been facing for a long time. In retaliation, the female residents of the condominium have filed a complaint against the police officials present during the protest on Saturday evening citing police misbehaviour towards them.
The complaint letter has now been sent to the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM), Bharat Gogia.
The letter is also supported by a video, where the SHO of Palam Vihar is seen telling the women: “Form bharne layak bhi nahi rahoge [you will not even be in a condition to fill out forms].”
The subject of the complaint states misbehaviour, threat and inappropriate action on behalf of the police staff present.
Speaking about the complaint, Mansi Talwar, a resident, explained, “We were holding a peaceful protest against illegal construction activities, traffic mess and pollution. We had repeatedly brought our concerns to the notice of the local police and other relevant authorities. However, we did not get any response from them. So what else could we do but protest? And now… an FIR, and a case, have been lodged against us! Imagine the irony!”
The residents had also approached the office of Rao Narbir Singh, public works department minister, yesterday. They were assured of action on the complaint.
