After a video of a woman being beaten up by policewomen at Lalbaughcha Raja Ganesh mandal went viral, the two women constables involved in the case have been suspended.
About the incident, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said, “This is a serious matter. The guilty won’t be spared.”
“We have called for a report from the police within 48 hours. In these 48 hours, we will also ensure that action is taken if anybody is found to be guilty. This is a very serious incident and we will ensure that no person who is guilty of manhandling is spared,” Fadnavis had said on Monday.
The reason for roughing up the woman, believed to be in her early 20s, was being said that the victim had come for the darshan of ‘Lalbaugcha Raja’ and was trying to gatecrash from the VIP entry, when she was caught and assaulted.
