Days after a police constable in Latur was assaulted by a mob, another embarrassing episode involving the uniform emerged in Thane. A video grab showed a woman traffic constable being thrashed in public by a man, who the police have identified as a local Shiv Sena leader from Dharamveer Nagar, Thane.
The police have pressed charges of molestation against Shashikant Kalgude, with the incident reported to have taken place on Thursday around 11 am.
The video from a closed circuit camera, which went viral, shows Kalgude alighting from a Scorpio (MH06 BE7340) on the main junction near Thane Municipal Corporation and slapping the lady constable at least six times.
No one is seen helping the constable for some time, even as Kalgude continues to assault her in the middle of busy traffic.
The 2007-batch lady constable, meanwhile, reported to duty Friday manning the traffic in the same junction.
