Shocking! UP cops ask 'complainant' to polish their shoes

May 30, 2016 14:37 IST

In a shocking incident, a complainant was allegedly asked by policemen in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district to shine their shoes to get his complaint filed at the police station.

The video of the complainant shining the shoes of the cops has gone viral.

The incident took place in Charthawal police station where 50-year old Sittu, a cobbler by profession, went to file a complaint about his missing mobile phone.

Rohtash, the reader at the police station, allegedly asked Sittu his profession following which they asked him to shine their shoes, only after which -- the cops reportedly said -- they would file his complaint.

The shameful incident was captured by a person present at the police station.

Taking cognizance of the matter, Superintendent of Police Santosh Kumar said, "A probe is underway and accordingly action will be taken."

In a similar incident at the same police station, Rohtash allegedly had asked a widow to get married instead of filing complaint against her step-son and daughter-in-law.

75-year-old Sharifan, who begs for a living, had come to the Charthawal police station earlier on Friday to lodge a complaint of torture against her step-son and daughter-in-law, but instead of help she was faced humiliation.
