Madhya Pradesh IAS officer Manjusha Vikrant Rai has become a topic of intense social media conversations after she was seen slapping a young boy in a  viral video.

Sharing the video of Rai’s criminal act, journalist Anurag Dwary wrote, “The slapping video of Shajapur Upper Collector Manjusha Vikrant Rai is viral. She slapped a child, who was present inside a shoe shop during corona curfew. ADM lost her cool to see the shop open.”

As expected, the video evoked angry reactions from netizens with demand for strict action against Rai gaining momentum.

Earlier, the Chhattisgarh government had to remove IAS officer Ranbir Sharma after he was caught assaulting a boy for allegedly violating the lockdown rules. A similar incident was reported from Bengaluru where civic body officials were seen brutally assaulting young boys for refusing to take corona test. The BBMP has merely launched an inquiry with criminals enjoying impunity for their violent actions.
