There are many honest and really hardworking policemen serving the nation. We all must respect them for their service. On the other hand, there are some guys who actually misuse their powers and land common people in trouble.
Here is the perfect example for this scenario. A responsible citizen named Partha P Boruah, a citizen of our country faced a situation where cops blame him without any reason and took him into custody.
This incident took place when his bike was stopped by the Police and he was interrogated for the 3 minutes where they asked for the driving license and registered papers of his bike.
Everything went well as he showed all the proper documents that he had carried with him. But what irked him was the curiosity to wonder why and how could the policemen in Khaki perform the job that is only assigned to TRAFFIC POLICE. Do they have the right?
Well, the moment he raised his voice against it, his bike keys were snatched away from him. Is that how they are taught ‘public dealings’? Just snatch away what they have and made them beg for it.
But this time they messed up with the wrong guy. Partha P Baruah straight away went LIVE ON FACEBOOK where he recorded everything happening to him and people around him.
Watch The Video Here:
In the video, we can clearly see that the Patroling car itself didn’t have any registered number plates. It’s the perfect example of ‘Law protectors being Law-breakers’. What is more important is to address the fact that such Policemen cannot stop your vehicle and snatch away your keys whenever they feel like.
According to Right To Information (RTI) filed by advocate Pawan Parikh, it is said that taking out the key of any two or four wheelers is completely wrong. No policeman, irrespective of any rank, has the power to do this.
Partha P Baruah again went live Facebook after this incident to explain things with much calmer mind and temper. This time he explained every single bit of the incident in a language suitable for us all.
Watch The Video Here:
It should be brought to the notice that only an officer of rank higher than HEAD CONSTABLE in Traffic Police has the power to stop commuters and interrogate them.
After this incident on 14th February 2017, he went through his first interrogation and was later asked to go through medical check up. On that day itself, he was taken to CJM Court where he was charged under IPC 294 AND IPC 353 for use of offensive words in public and assault and deter public servant from discharge of his duty.

This whole incident spread like a wildfire on the social media. He is currently in police custody for the next 14 days and this is how JUSTICE WAS SERVED to a person who opposed them.
No actions were taken against the policemen who harassed the commuters in the name of ‘checking’ even when they weren’t designated for that post.
