Uttar Pradesh: Policing in Badaun district in Uttar Pradesh has become “hazardous” and “humiliating” for the common man.
In a video that has gone viral on the social media, cops are seen making people hold up their hands at gun point while they check their vehicle.
The video was shot at the Bagren outpost in Wazirganj police station area and the outpost in-charge Rahul Kumar Sisodia is seen in the clip, intimidating people.
According to the residents, this has become a routine manner of checking by the police.
“If you are driving and the cops want to stop you, they will do that with a gun in hand. The method is so intimidating and humiliating for the common man. The cops make no concession even if the driver is a woman,” said Raj Kumar Agarwal, a businessman.
A police official in Badaun, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “Badaun is a crime prone area and we keep our guns out because you never know which vehicle is bringing criminals. We have to remain prepared.”
