New Delhi: A Misrik police station in-charge of Uttra Pradesh’s Sitapur, Avad Senger, has been sent to attach after a video of him using derogatory language against a Dalit woman went viral.

The woman had approached the policeman with a complaint, but instead of listening to her, the accused policeman shouted at her and used abusive words to drive her away.

In a viral video of the incident, the woman was seen crying and pleading in front of the police officer, which did not seem to bother him.

You Chalaegi Kanoon…? (Use the law?)” said the officer angrily. The video also shows another woman approaching the complainant, who tries to slap her but stops. The police officer did not react to this and continued to shout at the complainant.

Taking cognizance of the video, the accused police constable has been posted as line deputy, Sitapur police said.
