Theft case against child dropped

Etawah: The theft case with the Jaswantnagar police against a 6-year-old girl, who was beaten up by the police, has been dropped and a case under Cr.PC 182 for registering a fake complaint has been lodged against Anju Katheria.

Katheria had alleged that the girl stole Rs. 280 from her wallet at a market in Jaswantpur area. TV footage showed the child being lifted by the hair by policemen and thrashed, while some others stood by. Following national outrage, senior sub-inspector Shyamlal Yadav was sacked and SHO Chandrabhan Singh suspended. In all, six policemen were booked under various sections of the IPC and the SC/S (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. The girl’s family has been provided security. — PTI
