11th February 2018, Kolkata: An old man was allegedly hit by a policeman when he tried to stop him from taking away his motorbike from where it was parked. When they didn’t listen to him, the old man took hold of the policeman sitting in the truck while it was moving. The policeman then slapped him and pushed him away from the running truck. The old man slapped him back in order of self-defense and this raged the cop. He pushed the aged on the ground and started beating him up with his foot on the victim’s chest.
The public was just watching the show and no one took a stand for the old man. Because as it would be going against the police. This senior citizen was just trying to convince the cop and stop him from taking away his scooter for no reason. The victim is now in a hospital. We cannot behave with a senior citizen like this. Pushing the man, slapping him and beating on the chest with foot is a punishable offense. The policeman deserves strict punishment for his act. In a country, where our PM is trying to give free education and make a better India, our senior citizens are getting this kind of behavior! What kind of safe country are we living in? Where is outright to raise a voice against the wrong?
What Does The Law Say
