New Delhi: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday posted a video of a girl being panned by a policeman for wearing jewellery while she was attempting to file a complaint against eve-teasing, and said the first step towards ensuring justice for women is to listen to them.
The policeman was later suspended, news agency ANI reported.
In the video posted on her Twitter account, the girl is seen recounting that she was molested by a group of men and her brother beaten up for protesting against their remarks. In response, the police official questions the girl about her attire and bangles and necklace typically worn by married women. He also pulls up her family.
छेड़खानी की रिपोर्ट लिखवाने गई लड़की के साथ थाने में इस तरह का व्यवहार हो रहा है। एक तरफ उत्तर प्रदेश में महिलाओं के खिलाफ अपराध कम नहीं हो रहे, दूसरी तरफ कानून के रखवालों का ये बर्ताव। महिलाओं को न्याय दिलाने की पहली सीढ़ी है उनकी बात सुनना।Video credits @benarasiyaa pic.twitter.com/J0FdqBR2Tt— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) July 25, 2019
"A girl who has gone to file a report of eve teasing is being treated in this manner at a police station. On one hand crimes against women are not going down in Uttar Pradesh, on the other hand protectors of law are behaving in this manner," Gandhi said in a tweet. The first step towards getting justice for women is listening to them, she added.
Gandhi has constantly attacked the Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over the alleged rise in crimes against women in the state, demanding action against those breaking the law.
