Now, nurse beaten up at Panchkula village


Panchkula, April 11

A few days after ASHA workers were misbehaved with while conducting a survey in Indira Colony, a staff nurse of the Civil Hospital here was allegedly assaulted and told to go to Pakistan by youths guarding an entry point of Billah village near Ramgarh.

The complainant, a Muslim, said the incident took place around 8:30 pm on Friday when she was returning home with her husband on a bike. She told the police that they were stopped by around 25 men guarding the entry point.

The woman said she told them that she was returning from the Civil Hospital after performing her duty. “Even as I showed them my ID card, they didn’t let us go and started beating us. Somehow, I managed to call my brother-in-law for help. We beseeched throughout. They didn’t pay heed and continued assaulting us. The suspects even groped me. When my brother-in-law tried to intervene, they hit him on his head with a stone. Furthermore, they told us to go to Pakistan and perform duties there,” she told the police in her complaint.

She has sought police protection for her and her family.

The police have registered a case under Section 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by a public servant), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) and 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code.

The FIR mentions the names of Brij Bhushan, Amit Kumar, Manjeet Singh, Sandeep and Golu as suspects. ASI Ram Mehar of the Ramgarh police chowki said a hunt had been launched to nab the suspects. — TNS
