Video of policeman 'groping' girls goes viral; probe ordered

Ahmedabad, Jan 9, 2016, (PTI):
A video clip purportedly showing a policeman groping girls and improperly touching women at a recently-held festival here, has gone viral on social media, following which the city police has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

Around a minute-long video clip captured by an unidentified person shows the accused policeman 'groping and indecently touching' girls and women while walking at the Kankaria Carnival held in the last week of December.

The Kankaria Carnival is a week-long festival held around Kankaria lake premises in the city, where cultural, art and social events are organised. Hundreds of police personnel are deployed at the Carnival for security purposes.

Since the face of the accused is not visible in the footage, which has gone viral on social media platforms like Whatsapp, he is yet to be identified and the city police have launched an inquiry into the matter.

"Police have ordered an inquiry, which is going on at present to identify the accused policeman from hundreds, who were posted there," Senior police inspector of Maninagar police station N S Desai said.

"We are also yet to identify who shot the video clip," Desai said
