On July 16, a couple paralysed from the waist below, dragged themselves to the office of the senior superintendent of police (SSP) in Meerut. As reported by The Times of India, the couple Sanjeev Kumar and his wife Savitri were robbed of all their money. However, the police reportedly chased them away when they tried to register the case of theft.

The police’s alleged apathy forced the couple to knock the SSP’s door one last time. This meant that the couple had to literally drag themselves to the SSP office in the scathing heat. The couple somehow managed to reach the office and submitted their application.

The couple also threatened to take their lives if the case was not registered and the amount of Rs 80,000, which they were robbed of, was not recovered. Kumar said, “It was all we had”.

After the couple submitted their application at the SSP office, quick action was taken. The Station House Officer (SHO) Rajendra Tyagi said, “The victims have claimed that they were turned away from the police station. I apologise for that. I have asked him to draft a fresh complaint following which FIR will be lodged.”


The theft

Reportedly, the incident took place on July 4 at the Dalit couple’s house in Harpur road. Both Kumar and Savitri had gone to visit their relatives. The thief allegedly stole Rs 80,000 and other valuables from their house.

Kumar said, “Based on our suspicion, we had named a woman, Shimla. Later, her husband Lakshman started harassing us for complaining to police.”

Kumar also claims that the police not only refused to file a case, they also threatened them.

The Logical Indian community requests the UP police to take action and also take action against police officers who refused to register her FIR.
