NHRC issues notice to UP police over death of woma
New Delhi: The NHRC on Monday issued notice to Uttar Pradesh Police in connection with death of a road accident victim after it was alleged that cops of two police stations were busy arguing over jurisdiction instead of taking to hospital the injured woman who was mauled by stray dogs.
If true, this indifference by the police who are supposed to take action is quite reprehensible and also violative of human rights of a citizen, the National Human Rights Commission observed in its notice.
The Director General of UP Police has been asked to submit a detailed report in the matter within four weeks after taking suo motu cognisance of the incident, an NHRC spokesperson said.
A woman senior citizen was knocked down by a vehicle in Hapur on April 21 and the police allegedly argued over jurisdiction and did not take the injured lady to a hospital for treatment.
Quoting media reports, the NHRC said, even as she was crying for help, the stray dogs mauled her to death.
