■ CHANDI­GARH: The wards of Chandi­garh and Pun­jab Po­lice per­son­nel are in­creas­ingly get­ting into trou­ble. At least three in­ci­dents in­volv­ing the sons of Chandi­garh and Pun­jab po­lice of­fi­cials have been wit­nessed in the past week.

Deal­ing with VIP brats has al­ways been a prob­lem with the po­lice. But, now the chil­dren of po­lice of­fi­cials in­dulging in law­less­ness are fast be­com­ing a men­ace for the lo­cal cops.

The lat­est in­ci­dent is of the son of a Chandi­garh cop who was in­volved in an ac­ci­dent on Sun­day night.

Pu­nit Soni of Sec­tor 20, al­leged that Vikram, who was driv­ing a Cruize car (CH-01AD-0095), rammed into his car.

Vikram is the son of a con­sta­ble with the Chandi­garh Po­lice.

The com­plainant al­leged that Vikram, res­i­dent of Sec­tor 44, along with Jatinder Kumar of Sec­tor 51, rammed into his car (CH-01AF-5612) and later thrashed him at the Sec­tor 20 and 30 light point.

Soni also al­leged that the po­lice were de­lib­er­ately de­lay­ing the case. He al­leged that though Vikram was un­der the in­flu­ence of liquor, no med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion was con­ducted.

A case un­der Sec­tions 279, 323, 427 and 506 of the IPC has been reg­is­tered at Sec­tor-19 po­lice sta­tion. The ac­cused have been ar­rested in this case.

In an­other in­ci­dent, on Jan­uary 25, the son of Pun­jab ADGP Mo­hammed Mustafa made the head­lines. Akeel Akhtar Mustafa (21) had re­port­edly man­han­dled a Pun­jab Po­lice head con­sta­ble at the Cir­cuit House in Sec­tor 39. A se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said pre­ven­tive ac­tion un­der Sec­tion 107/150 of the CRPC was taken on the spot.

The next day, on Repub­lic Day, a ma­jor se­cu­rity lapse on the part of Chandi­garh Po­lice came to the fore, when a motorcyclist, who is the son of a Chandi­garh cop, man­aged to break the po­lice cor­don near the Pa­rade Ground in Sec­tor 17.

The po­lice said the motorcyclist iden­ti­fied as Shamsher Singh of Sec­tor 70 and the son of a po­lice in­spec­tor, man­aged to en­ter the re­stricted en­try zone by over­tak­ing the po­lice cav­al­cade.

When the po­lice tried to nab him, he rammed his mo­tor­cy­cle into the bar­ri­cades near the green gate of Pa­rade Ground.
