Towing trouble

Mumbai Police made a heavy weather of a towing row and the video had gone viral and giving head ache to the state government. Now it is left to cops to study video clips from various angel and seek an explanation from the constable on why he went ahead with action when a woman was sitting inside and breastfeeding her kid. It is all mystery whether the police acted within the traffic regulations adhered in the city. Anyway it was absolutely insensitive and dangerous to tow the vehicle with the lady and the child inside. The cop is suspended and orders have been given to sensitise traffic cops so as to prevent such incidents in future. In the meanwhile; another video, captured by one of the personnel in the towing vehicle, surfaced on WhatsApp in a different angle. In the video, the man who recorded the video tries to argue with the police personnel. When they refuse to entertain him and attach the towing mechanism to the car, he asks his wife to sit inside with their child. Traffic Police officers are trying to trace the couple to record their statements. They are also examining CCTV footage of the area, based on which further action will be decided. Social media go haywire and make the issue most tricky in these days. Towing trouble is one more case such a strange situation.
