Employees of MY car showroom lodged their complaint to home minister Babulal Gaur against deputy superintendent of police (DSP), traffic, Mahendra Jain, who had shoved vehicles in front of the showroom and misbehaved with those who raised objection to his conduct.

Gaur instructed inspector general of police, Yogesh Choudhary, to conduct a probe and take action within two days, according to the report. “I have ordered a probe and action would be taken against the police officer if he is found guilty,” Gaur told the HT.

On Wednesday, DSP Jain created a ruckus outside the showroom where vehicles of the staff and visitors were parked. A video clipping showing DSP Jain booting a two-wheeler of a woman and abusing her for her bid to object to his conduct, was in circulation in social media — WhatsApp — and local news channels.

A local, Shakshi Shukla, said, “It’s been two days but senior police officers have failed to take action against the officer. The home minister has assured us. If any action is not taken, we will approach him again.”

Twenty-two employees of MY car and other shops situated near the showroom met Gaur and lodged their complaint. Another employee Keshav Verma said, “We were requesting the office to take legal action and impose fine on us.”
