Worried over the fate of their cop husbands, posted in various Balaghat police stations, over 20 women have recently met in Baihar town to chalk out a strategy to further the cause of seven suspended cops, who were booked for alleged assault on RSS pracharak Suresh Yadav.

The women, while talking to Hindustan Times on Saturday, revealed that if justice was denied to the suspended cops, they might hold demonstrations before chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Bhopal.

“The CM terms the fairer sex as his behen, bhanji and bhatijis (sisters and nieces). Does he apply the same rule for us? If yes, why is he not doing anything to help seven cops and three sacked home guards,” said one of the women.

The wife of a constable posted at one of the Maoist-hit police stations of Balaghat added, “It has happened today with seven cops, including the ASP. If we don’t oppose it, the same or even worse might happen to our husbands too.”

Rekha Vijaywar, wife of one of the accused ASI Suresh Vijaywar, said: “Our Dussehra has been ruined; god knows what will happen to the Diwali. There seems to be no respite for my husband.” The accused cops included suspended ASP-Baihar Rajesh Sharma, then Baihar police station in charge Ziya ul Haq and sub-inspector Anil Ajmeriya among others.
