Cop, CRPF Jawan caught on cam handling gun to child

Tura, Feb 25: In a display of utter irresponsibility, a policeman and a CRPF personnel were caught on camera handling a young boy their service gun to pose for photographs. The incident came to light after the photos went viral on social media.

Netizens have called out the reckless behaviour shown by the security personnel and demanded strict action against the two.

The incident reportedly occurred on the third week of December last year. And the very same policeman had allegedly posted the photos on social media.

Responding to the matter, Dr MGR Kumar, SP, West Garo Hills said, “This is a serious breach of duty and the matter is being taken up very earnestly. This is giving out the wrong picture of how police and CRPF men need to act.”

Further he added that, a show cause notice has been issued to the policeman in question while departmental proceedings are expected soon.

According to reports, the policeman had allegedly posted photos of himself with a gun, while not in uniform and allowed a young boy to hold the gun for a photograph as the CRPF personnel looked on.

The gun was allegedly unarmed as the magazine was taken out of it. Prima facie, the gun belonged to the CRPF.

“This is unacceptable behaviour and requires serious action. What was the need to pose for photos with a gun while not dressed in uniform? Further why give a gun to a child. This is sending the wrong message to people – with or without the magazine,” said Dr Kumar.

Reports state that the CRPF personnel in question has been transferred out of Tura while the cop awaits action from the police department.

The SP also informed that a circular on ‘do’s and don’ts’ are also being circulated throughout the police department while higher authorities have also been apprised of the matter.
