Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 18: In a brazen incident of impropriety and illegality, Domana Police forcibly drove over 30 students, of an eminent school including girls on Akhnoor road to police station, for no fault of theirs and harassed them for hours.
According to students, the moment they came out of the school gate after it went off, and crossed the road to reach the place where they had parked their two-wheelers, they were surrounded by policemen, half of them without uniforms led by the SHO, who intimidated them and used abusive language and asked them to follow them to the police station. Frightened and confused, many a students in a state of fix started crying and pleaded to let them off, but cops in civvies, herded them to the police station, without telling them why they were being treated as criminals.
When the children failed to reach home on time, worried parents started calling teachers, who had no clue. One of the parents who rushed to the school was informed by the locals that a gang of policemen from police station Domana had driven some thirty children with them. "I rang up the SHO Domana to know why my child was being taken to police station and he told me that SP Rural had directed him to do so". Narrating his conversation with the SP Rural Arun Kumar, the parent told Early Times that the SP said that he wanted to educate the children on the Motor Vehicle Act and warn them against its violations.

wrong foot
Irate parents have invited the attention of the DGP and demanded action against the erring SP for violating the Apex court guidelines and forcibly taking the children to the Police station.
iven to police station, he was himself committing a grave illegality and violation of SC guidelines. "The SP said that he was worried over the increasing road accidents involving teenagers and hence wanted to counsel them, but he failed to figure out that his modus operandi was illegal and unlawful" narrated the parent. "When asked why he did not go to the school to counsel the children, he said that the school administration did not give him time" he added.
Children who were allowed to go after an hour of illegal 'detention' narrated the stories of police high handedness and intimidation by the SP and his staff. "We did not even start over scooties when policemen, half of them smoking and chewing gutka pounced at us and coerced us to follow them. Some of us were made to sit in the SHO's vehicle and there was no question of any violation and we were not asked any questions. All through the way, the policemen were intimidating us and using abusive language in the presence of girls, even the SP was arrogant and impolite while talking to us and our parents" said one of the students.
Principal of the school when contacted admitted that he was approached by the police for a lecture on traffic violations and he had given his consent. He also admitted that he was not informed by the Police that they contemplated such an action.
