Barbarians in police uniform - protectors or executionersBy now everyone must be aware of the barbarism that happened in a TN city in recent times. The way a father-son duo were severely tortured and left to die, speaks of the animal instinct a few of our protectors in police uniform still harbour. The father-son duo were not criminals or even offenders. They were ordinary humans like you and me who made a living by running an electronics shop. That they had a tiff-off with some cops, who picked them up on the false accusation of breaking the lockdown rules and then thrashing them most inhumanely entire night long in a police lock-up. It reminds of the barbarism that the Nirbhaya victim had to suffer in the hands of her tormentors way back in 2012 in Delhi. It was six criminals then and six cops this time, yes uniformed cops, who are supposed to be protectors and not executioners.
No wonder, the incident has generated outrage in the entire country and the case has been handed over to the CBI by the Chief Minister himself. Hope the perpetrators are punished at the earliest and none of them is able to get off scot-free. Maybe those from the region could throw more light into the behaviour of the cops. Is it a one-off case or the police, in general, behaves in such high-handed way there? Please comment.
