Deputy superintendent of police (DSP), traffic, Mahendra Jain created a ruckus outside MY Car showroom where some vehicles of the showroom employees and visitors were parked on Wednesday. He shoved the vehicles and misbehaved with those who raised objection to his conduct.

Also, a video clipping, showing 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.

Talking to media persons, the woman Shakshi Shukla who works as sales executive at the showroom said, “I was trying to stop him but he abused me. I asked him to impose penalty if my vehicle is parked at no-parking zone but he misbehaved with me.”

In fact, Jain, who was leading a traffic police team which was shoving the vehicles parked in no-entry zone, flew off the handle seeing the vehicles parked in the no-parking zone outside the showroom and began to boot the two-wheelers. He shoved at least 10-12 two-wheelers that fell to the ground.

Another employee of the showroom Yashwant Singh said, “The traffic police personnel suddenly came and began to shove our vehicles. When we objected, they abused us.”

However, a press release issued by the traffic police said the team members did not misbehave with anyone.

“The vehicles parked at the no-parking zones were being lifted by a crane. On seeing it, some people rushed to the spot and opposed the move. In the process, some vehicles fell from the crane,” the release said.

In-charge of the city traffic police Shalani Dixit also refuted the allegations and said, “Our staff was taking action against those who parked their vehicles at no-parking zone. But they didn't misbehave with anybody.”
