In response to a viral video showing the children of Behta Mujawar police station (Unnao) SHO Ramesh Chandra Sahani sitting with bundles of Rs 500 currency notes, Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddharth Shankar Meena has taken cognisance of the matter. The SP has ordered the SHO to be sent to police lines and initiated a probe into the incident, which will be conducted by the Bangarmau circle officer (CO).
The Viral Video
The video in question depicts the two children of SHO Ramesh Chandra Sahani sitting on a bed with 27 bundles of Rs 500 currency notes. The photo, which also features the police officer’s wife, showcases a significant amount of cash, totalling over Rs 13 lakhs. The video was widely shared on social media, drawing attention to the matter.
CO Pankaj Singh’s Response
CO Pankaj Singh, in a viral social media post, confirmed the authenticity of the video and stated that the Sahani family members were indeed seen sitting with bundles of Rs 500 currency notes. As the video continues to circulate online, the CO has initiated an ongoing investigation into the matter to determine its implications and authenticity.
When approached by news agency PTI for a statement on the viral video, the shunted SHO, Ramesh Chandra Sahani, did not respond to calls. His silence has raised further questions about the circumstances surrounding the video and its potential implications on his position as a police officer.
Similar Incidents and Political Commentary
This incident comes after a recent case involving an IPS officer, Anirudh Singh, who was seen demanding money from a businessman. Samajwadi party leader Akhilesh Yadav criticized the Yogi government in response to the video, questioning the party’s approach to dealing with such incidents. As a result of Yadav’s tweet, a probe was ordered against the IPS officer, who is currently stationed in Varanasi. The Commissioner has been tasked with submitting a report on the matter. It is worth noting that the purported video of Singh demanding money dates back over 2 years and has no connection to Meerut, as clarified by Meerut Police on Twitter. The investigation into the IPS officer’s conduct has been concluded.
The viral video showing the children of SHO Ramesh Chandra Sahani with bundles of currency notes has led to the initiation of a probe by Superintendent of Police Siddharth Shankar Meena. As the investigation proceeds under the guidance of the Bangarmau circle officer, CO Pankaj Singh, the circumstances and implications of the video will be carefully examined. The incident sheds light on issues of transparency and accountability within the police force, sparking public interest and commentary from political figures.
