A sub-inspector has been overwhelmed by the courage to pay a fine for stopping, interrupting and breaking the guidelines of Roorkee MLA. However, this action has angered the local people and a protest has been warned.
Dehradun. A video was on social media, in which a sub-inspector posted in Mussoorie fined an MLA for not following the guidelines of Kovid 19. In this video, the sub-inspector had talked about performing his duty, then the MLA was also seen throwing money in the video. After this popular video went viral, there is news that that sub-inspector has been transferred. After this news, allegations are also being made that this inspector is facing the consequences of showing courage to take action against the sitting MLA within the legal framework.
The matter is that on Sunday, there was a video on social media, in which Roorkee MLA Pradeep Batra was allegedly seen roaming with his family in Mussoorie during the time of lockdown and was not even wearing a mask. Objecting to this, a sub-inspector imposed a fine on him. Mussoorie Circle Officer Narendra Pant said that this sub-inspector named Neerak Kathait has been transferred to Kalsi, 40 km from Dehradun.
