The residents in Uttar Pradesh took matter in their own hands when they saw that the police were getting beaten up by political goons. To save the cop and to send a message across, the people used force and physical power.
As was reported by nnis, the residents of Amroha were really unhappy with the fact that the minister's brother slapped the cop in duty. The matter is now with the district's Adampur jail. As per the reports, a contractor named Aflatoon was felling trees in illegal manner in spite of the locals condemning the action.
The incident was reported to the local police, but the repercussion was not anticipated by the residents. As soon as the police tried to stop the person from felling the trees, Jamaal Akhtar also reached the venue and started misbehaving with the sub inspector and threatened him.
SP Singh, the DIG of the area said, “Hot words were exchanged between the minister's brother and the inspector on duty. Both the parties filed an FIR after the alleged incident and we are looking into the matter.”
After the initial altercation when the sub inspector did not give permission to cut trees, then the minister's brother resorted to beating up the inspector. Since the trees belonged to the forest department, hence cutting them or harming them was illegal. The fact that the Akhtar tried to use his political clout against the people and the administration did not go well with the residents.
