New Delhi : A woman, who helped the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) and police bust an illicit liquor racket in Narela, was on Thursday allegedly beaten and her clothes torn by other women of the locality and paraded naked in the area.
“The entire incident was filmed and the video was allegedly shared in the area by criminals. The incident proves lawlessness and zero fear of law in the area and it is shocking that police did not take any action to protect these women,” DCW chief Swati Jaihin said.
The group of women were involved in bootlegging, police said.
Terming the incident as “shocking and shameful”, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal urged lieutenant governor Anil Baijal to intervene and take action against local policemen who were allegedly colluded with those running the liquor racket.
The police have registered a case under various sections of the IPC against the women involved in the incident.
Ms Jaihind said that the woman had tipped off the DCW about illegal liquor sale during an inspection in Narela area last night after which she was on Thursday attacked by a mob of around 25 people and beaten with iron rods.
In a video, which was shared by Ms Maliwal on her Twitter handle, the victim alleged that she was threatened and asked not to raise voice against liquor mafia. “I was dragged and disrobed. A police personnel tried to stop them, but he was also thrashed. The liquor mafia said that they would do the same with Ms Jaihind and any other woman who opposes them,” the victim said between sobs.
Ms Jaihind, in turn, summoned the DCP, Rohini district, to appear before the women’s panel and submit an action taken report along with details of the FIR registered in the incident of attack on the woman.
