Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 22: A poor teenager boy, who had purchased a smart phone worth Rs. 20,000 on instalments but was confiscated by police in district Kathua nearly a fortnight back but so far the boy has not got his phone, despite summoning him regularly to police station and then refuse to give him the same.
The poor boy has been mentally as well as physically harassed by the police as he has to miss the customers in his small kiosk while the phone, which he had purchased on instalments, is reported being used by someone else from the police department.
Early Times in its edition of November 13, had carried a detailed story, titled, "Poor teenager purchases smart-phone on instalments, police take it forcibly, Threatens to frame him in false case, if he discloses". The story had disclosed how a poor teenager boy had landed in police station and later ordeal he meted out at the hands of Police.
The boy had reportedly purchased a smart-phone worth over Rs. 20,000 on instalments and had paid only some, when a complaint was lodged against him in police station by a girl, landing him in police custody, where police forcibly took his smart phone despite furnishing of enough evidences by the police to prove his innocence.
The police had adopted a typical modus operandi of initially levelling allegations against the poor boy of having a stolen smart phone. The police had asked the poor boy to produce the original bill voucher as well as packing box, which was done by boy. "It was actually to erase all the evidences", sources had disclosed, adding that after the publication of the news story by the Early Times, a senior police official had taken serious view of the matter and had passed serious instructions to immediately handed over the smart phone to the poor boy and had also threatened to take action.
Sources further disclosed that despite strict orders from the senior police official, the junior police official and his colleagues have become so arrogant that they have been summoning the poor-boy regularly to the police station.
The poor boy could not evade the orders of police station and has been repeatedly harassed by one way or the other. "The boy is running a small shop but regular summoning him to police station has ruined his business. Moreover the police personnel have been making excuses of SHO not available, in whose possession is the smart phone", sources said, adding that even some honest police personnel had also raised finger over the conduct of police personnel but other have become adamant to teach boy a lesson by framing him in some case as the boy had disclosed the matter to some close ones.
