Lucknow— In the wake of a shocking Incident in which a corporate executive Shekhar Mishra was accused of urinating on an elderly woman in an Air India Flight, a similar case has emerged in Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh, however, unlike the Air India case, which received national coverage and sparked TV debates, the Barabanki incident has remained largely unreported.
According to a report in Amrit Vichar, Lalmati of Chauhan purwa majre patna in Barabanki district reported that Raj Singh, Ram Sagar Singh, Sachin Singh, Rajkumar Singh, Bhubhooti Singh, and Gopal Singh among others have been engaging in the reprehensible behavior of urinating from their roof onto her home and throwing human excrement and urine at her house. When she protested this act, the accused reportedly barged into her house and physically assaulted her further threatening with dire consequences.
In stark contrast to the victim of the Air India incident, who received significant media attention and support, Lalmati, the Dalit woman, faced much hardships in getting her case registered at the local police station. It was only after she sought assistance from the SC/ST commission that some progress was made in the case. On the direction of the commission, her case was finally registered at Dewa police station in the city. The case involves seven accused, including an unknown individual.
When The Mooknayak contacted the Dewa Police Station SHO Pankaj Kumar Singh, he confirmed that the case has been registered and an investigation is underway at the level of Circle Officer. The Mooknayak attempted to reach the Circle Officer for comment, but was unsuccessful. The contrast with the Air India incident is further highlighted by the fact that, in this case, the accused have yet to be arrested, whereas in the Air India incident, not only was the accused passenger dismissed from his multinational company, but he was also arrested within days of the incident coming to light."
