Misbehavior of cop drew Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's ire

Kanpur, July 25 (IBNS): Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra angrily twitted against Uttar Pradesh cops as a local head constable named Tar Babu not only refused to take an FIR from a 16 year old girl but also misbehaved with her.

It is being learnt that the state police had removed the accused head constable.

The teen aged girl sought to file an FIR in a molestation case.

Tar Babu 'interrogated' the girl about the jeweleries the girl sported and even questioned her character in presence of her parents who accompanied her.

Cops registered the FIR only after the video of Tar Babu misbehaving with the girl went viral.

"This is how they behaved with a girl who has come to file a molestation report. On one hand, there is no let-up in crimes against women in Uttar Pradesh, and on the other hand, this is the conduct of those who are supposed to protect the law," Priyanka tweeted in Hindi, along with the mobile phone video that is being widely circulated.

The incident surfaced on a day the Supreme Court passed orders on a petition related to child abuse and asked for special courts to try child abuse cases. While hearing the case, Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi remarked that "some amount of kindness, tact and zeal" needs to be displayed in cases related to the POCSO or Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

The teen in the video apparently got the exact opposite treatment.

Uttar Pradesh police say they are investigating the matter and will take further action against the head constable Tar Babu if deemed fit.
