    Indians are not slaves any more of British, police acts just like they are and behave just like they did when Police was pet dogs of British and used openly use violence on people. British are long gone but police behave like they own people. So its about time Police brought a notch down, so good thing she was demoted for her act. That should be reminder to all cops they are servant of people not own them. No excuses for misusing power.

      ISI funded IT Cell Members are bereft of intelligence, as usual. They are hurling their stock abuse of the BJP, 'saffron this and that". We are dealing with regular police doing their regular job. Police are the same Police as during Dynasty rule... We do not know the political membership of the men in the car. Since the 1980s, in India offenders can argue with Police and sometimes get away with punching them also. In Advanced Countries, one can argue with Police, yes, but must face the charge of "Obstructing Police in the lawful execution of their duties", which carries heavy fine and imprisonment. Tinted glasses in cars and SUVs MUST GO. Police MUST charge Rs. 500/- for peeling off the film, but also FINE the driver and owner Rs.5,000/- each. If the driver argues for too long, then the CAR should be CONFISCATED for up to TWO MONTHS, returned only on payment of another Rs.5,000/- plus towing and storage cost of another Rs.5,000/-... Hindus do not know how to be TOUGH.

          'Goonda Raj' by the occupants of the car or the Police ? Do you support kidnapping of women by men in cars like this and violated in the car, as it drives around in broad day light in crowded streets ??

                Looks like a group of anti-social persons trying to hide their immoral activities behind tinted glass. It is illegal to have tinted car glasses as it affects the driver's vision of the surrounding area. Why is the police officer demoted for removing illegality? Are these goons well connected?
