While the Indian Government has taken wise decisions about enforcing a nationwide lock down, it turns out that some officials think that they are above the law.
A video uploaded by Shantonil Nag on YouTube shows a uniformed member of the Home Guard being punished for stopping a vehicle that was violating the lock down rules.
The man in the vehicle turned out to be District Agricultural Officer Manoj Kumar who made the Home Guard Ganesh Lal Tatma do fifty sit-ups as a punishment for stopping his vehicle. Mr Tatma was told that he would be sent to jail if he did not comply.
One can hear a Senior Officer of the Home Guard asking Mr Tatma how he could stop an officer's car. The District Agriculture Officer sought an apology from Mr Tatma who was forced to fold his hands and put his head on the DAO's feet.
Mr Gupteshwar Pandey, the Director-General of the Police of Bihar, addressed the incident after it turned viral on Social Media and received a lot of flack. The DGP said that strong action will be taken against those found guilty after an investigation.
The authorities have issued a show cause notice to Manoj Kumar for making the home guard do the sit-ups as a punishment The show cause notice has been served by the Agricultural Minister of the state, Prem Kumar.
The incident is currently being investigated and the Araria Superintendent of Police, Dhurat Dayala Sablaram said that he was following up with the police officers in charge of the task.
Thoughts About The Home Guard Punished By The District Agriculture Officer
Government officials have been turned away by the police in other parts of the country because of the lock down, and here we have Bihar. The ultimate example of uncultured, uncouth, and deafeningly illiterate.
That definition doesn't just stop at the States leaders, it willingly extends to all personnel in ‘government' service within the State. The Director-General of Police for example has ordered an investigation when all the evidence the office needs is floating around on Social Media.
And then there's the District Agricultural Officer who has no fear about ordering a uniformed member of the Home Guard to put his head on his feet. One can fret about ed-moralizing situations like these, and hope for change. But again, what use is it when the blind lead the blind.
