Antics of a drunken sub-inspector of police seemed to have sullied the image of Lucknow Police.

Omkar Prasad Tripathi, a sub-inspector of the Bazaar Khala Police Station not only molested women but also reviled and manhandled his senior officer.

Evidently, the cop came out on streets in an inebriated state and started misbehaving with womenfolk. For two hours, he went on with his shameless drive of lifting saris and skirts of passerby women. He was also seen patting on women's bottom.

It is learnt that when people of the area strongly objected to his stunts, he whipped out his revolver and threatened to shoot if any one obstructed his game.

The senior sub-inspector of Bazarkhala police station, Uma Shankar Tripathi apparently lost his cool and ordered sub-inspector Tripathi to behave properly. But Omkar Prasad abused manhandled him. He not only hurled abuses at his superior officer but also took out his pistol and threatened to shoot him.

Also few days ago, a maidservant working at the residence of Omkar Prasad Tripathi had alleged rape against him. On the contrary, Omkar is alleging that Uma Shankar goaded the maid to lodge a rape case against him. He is also saying that false rumours have been spread against him to tarnish his image.
