Patna, June 6(ANI): In yet another incident of moral policing, woman police officers publicly humiliated couples in Shahid Pir Ali Khan Park in Patna, Bihar.

A huge crowd, including women and children witnessed the scenes of female cops beating and pulling hair of young couples and insulting them ruthlessly.

“We saw police confine some couples in the park and also beating them. A scene was created in the park, which was not good. This should not happen, as this is a children park. Families with children come here to enjoy and this is not good for children to witness all this,” said Sushil, a visitor in the park.

Those who watched it strongly disapproved the act. They felt that police should have shown some restraint, as families were also present in the park.

Following the incident, sub-Inspector Anita Gupta was suspended for insulting couples ruthlessly. (ANI)
