In a shocking development, a police constable has been kidnapped from Haryana’s Gurgaon, which is the adjoining city of India’s national capital, Delhi. The video of the chilling incident, which took place on Tuesday, has now gone viral on social media platforms.
In the video, an SUV can be seen arriving in a lane before a group of men emerge out of the car to forcibly drag the constable out of his house to push him inside the car. The constable, identified as Madan, manages to push his way out of the Tata Safari car from the opposite door. But the kidnappers soon overpower him to push him back inside the car. Seconds later, the kidnappers speed away with Madan inside the car.
The incident took place in Rajiv Nagar area of Sector 14. The news has sent shockwaves in the area with local residents casting serious doubts on the police’s ability to protect ordinary citizens when a cop himself gets abducted in broad daylight.
The Congress has slammed the BJP government of Haryana to drive home a point on the deteriorating law and order situation in the state. Senior Congress leader Randeep Surjewala tweeted the video of the chilling incident and wrote, “When policemen are not safe under the rule of the BJP in Haryana, one can understand the plight of common people. Police constable Madan has been kidnapped in broad daylight in Gurugram (Gurgaon). The miscreants carried out the crime in Rajiv Nagar area by using Tata Safari car. When will the (Manohar Lal) Khattar government wake up?”
हरियाणा के भाजपा राज में जब पुलिसकर्मी ही सुरक्षित नहीं हैं तो आम जनता का हालत भली-भाँति समझी जा सकती है।
