A delegation of 32 women trainee cops, dismissed after their revolt and indulgence in violence damaging police vehicles and property on November 2 to vent their ire following death of a trainee woman cop from dengue as she was not allegedly granted leave for proper treatment, today called on State Women Commission and apprised the Commission that they were being subjected to a series of torture in Patna police line.
A delegation of dismissed women trainee cops disclosed before the State Women Commission Chairperson Dilmani Devi and member Usha Vidyarthi that they were being subjected to torture of serious nature particularly for women for the last three months in Patna Police Line, which had become unbearable for them. The limitation of their patience crossed when their colleague Savita Pathak died of dengue as she was not given leave for proper treatment despite making request to this effect repeatedly, they pointed out.
A dismissed woman cop said that senior police officials used to call women cops in their chambers alone on some pretext but their intention was doubtful. It was felt that just to harass and seek undue favour from a woman, was only intention of some senior police officials, she alleged.
Some dismissed cops said that they were not given even basic facilities in police line to stay and discharge their duties, needed for women. It had become very difficult for women cops to discharge their duties and for thelast three months, no heed was paid by the senior officials for redressal of their grievances, cops lamented.
Women cops were not given training before deployment for duties. It was difficult for them to discharge their duties without getting training and the scenario turned out to be pathetic in absence of proper facilities required for women to stay with dignity in police line, cops felt.
