Inquiry ordered against cop accused of extortion and threatening Gurugram society residents with service revolver
People have still not forgotten the alleged role of a DCP rank officer in abetting the suicide of a property dealer. And now, role of another cop has emerged in "extortion" of money from some shopkeepers in a society in Gurugram's Sector-51.

Residents of Orchid Island society in Gurugram's Sector 51 on Wednesday met Haryana Union Minister Rao Narbir Singh and demanded a probe against a police officer who had allegedly abused and threatened them with his service revolver on Tuesday evening.

The accused police officer has been identified as Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Ajay Kumar Sharma of Sector 39 crime branch.

According to a Hindustan Times report, the cop not only brandished his service revolver and pointed it at the chest of one of the residents but also called local goons who allegedly beat up the residents with canes and lathis. 

KK Rao, Commissioner of  Police, Gurugram told that an inquiry had been ordered and strict action would be taken against the accused police officer, if found guilty.

It's right that one is innocent until proved guilty, but shouldn'tthe cope be sent to the police lines until the probe is over so that he cannot influence the probe?

Such incidents are only tip of the iceberg as a large number of cases aren't even reported as people have lost faith in the system.
