A 44-year-old woman from Gurgaon was arrested on Friday for allegedly assaulting and abusing an Army constable and a subedar in Vasant Kunj on September 9. An officer and a passerby made a recording of the incident, which has been submitted to police.

Additional DCP (south), Chinmoy Biswal said the woman, identified as Smriti Kalra, was produced in the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen, who granted her bail.

As per the FIR lodged on September 13, police said the subedar was heading towards Hazrat Nizamuddin station in a truck to drop off five colleagues. The truck was being driven by the constable. Near Rajokri flyover, a Tata Indica driven by Kalra overtook it. In his complaint, the subedar alleged that she was driving in a zig-zag manner and refused to give way. He also claimed that Kalra blocked their way when they tried to drive past her.

The driver stopped the truck and the subedar asked him to talk to Kalra. However, the complaint alleged that Kalra held the constable by the collar, slapped him and hurled abuses at him.

Police said Kalra then came to the truck and banged on its windows. She then hurled abuses at the subedar. He got out to speak to her but she slapped him a couple of times, the complaint alleged. As the woman was holding up traffic, the subedar’s colleagues got out. Kalra immediately walked towards her car and sped off.

    The Indian law and public policy seem to be nasty by being soft towards errant women. Are women in India above the law? The women are being allowed to take undue advantage of their gender. How long the Indian law will be soft towards women offenders? Whenver a woman in India commits crime and is arrested she will be released on bail immediately. This is really discrimination for men. When women demand equality then they should be distinguished in being punished like men. What for the women police for then? If the law is not serious against women, then other women will become confident to commit crimes and bully on men.

          In a gulf country an expatiate Indian was arrested for taking photo of an army vehicle and was in jail for 1 month and deported after release.But in India we block the army vehicle and slap the soldier and may not be punished. We should give respect our soldiers are willing to sacrifice their precious lives for our safety.

            Indian Armymen are now being slapped by India Mahilas. How can they protect borders when they are beaten by Mahilas? Shame on these rusted Jawans.
