How far can one go to get away from his wife? An assistant commissioner of police (ACP) in Jaipur learnt it the hard way — with sore lips and bloodied nose to be precise.
The person responsible for his sore lips and bloodied nose is now cooling his heels in jail, happy at being away from his wife.
It all began when a 30-year-old man walked into the Shipra Path police station Thursday morning and asked the officials to put him in jail.
“I want to go to jail…I beat my wife. Please lock me up,” Yogesh Golya urged the men-in-khaki leaving them stumped. His wife too had reached the police station and wanted to lodge a case against him.
Understanding that it was a case of marital discord, Mansarovar ACP Deshraj Yadav tried to mediate between the two and, in a friendly gesture, put an arm on Golya’s shoulders to calm him down.
What happened next was something that Yadav didn’t foresee coming his way.
“Golya suddenly punched the ACP on his face. As a result, the officer was injured. Blood started gushing out of his lips,” Mukesh Choudhary, station house officer, Shipra Path police station, told HT.
The police said that Golya, who owns a shop in the Walled City, had come to the police station following a marital discord with his wife.
“His wife too had come and both wanted to lodge cases against each other. The man kept on saying that he wanted to go to jail. He looked very troubled and also confessed to have had beaten his wife,” said Choudhary.
Yadav, who has dealt with many dreaded criminals, was left shocked after the sudden attack inside a police station by an unassuming businessman.
“After assaulting the ACP, Golya looked calm and said that now, finally he would go to jail. He kept on saying that he is very much troubled because of his wife,” said the police.
The injured police official was taken to a hospital while Golya got what he had been asking for from the very beginning, to be put in jail.
“He was sent to jail as a case against him was registered, charging him for stopping a government official from doing his duty,” a police official said.
