Guwahati: After facing massive criticism from various corners over a video showing some on-duty security officials and police personnel punishing women and children for allegedly violating curfew norms, Assam police on Friday ordered an inquiry into the matter.
The video, from Guwahati’s Fancy Bazar area, surfaced on social media on May 14 and shows how children and women were made to do sit-ups for being out during curfew hours.
The video has attracted criticism from various parts of the state. Many also took to Twitter to slam the Assam police department for their alleged harsh behaviour upon the children.
Meanwhile, Guwahati police took to Twitter to mention an inquiry has been ordered into the matter.
“With regard to a video showing some security personnel allegedly punishing women and children for allegedly violating curfew norms at Fancy Bazar area, an inquiry has been ordered,” the tweet by Guwahati Police read.
