A roadside supplier was taken into authorities custody in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr district on Tuesday over a problem that he was offering shoes which had a caste-identifying word inscribed on its sole, officials stated. The supplier, Nasir, was scheduled following a problem by a regional resident, Vishal Chauhan, that the shoes being sold by him had the word “Thakur” written on it, a senior official stated.
” Based upon the problem, an FIR has actually been lodged against the shoe vendor at the Gulawathi police headquarters and the matter is being examined. Additional action would be taken on the basis of the probe,” Extra Superintendent of Authorities (City) Atul Kumar Srivastava stated. The FIR has been lodged under Indian Penal Code areas 153 A (promoting enmity in between groups and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of consistency), 504 (deliberate insult to provoke breach of peace), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), according to authorities.
The incident and the cops action drew sharp criticism from some social networks users. Reacting to the reactions, the district cops said on Twitter: “Had the cops not taken the action as per the legal system, many individuals would have reacted differently or in the incorrect way (ulti ya bhinn pratikriya dete). For this reason, the authorities have actually followed the guidelines and please take a look at it in the very same method.”
