Video: Woman dragged on road by UP cops outside police station

A video has surfaced from Uttar Pradesh's Hardoi district, showing a woman being dragged on the road by two police officers. The incident, which took place outside the office of the Superintendent of Police (SP), has gone viral on social media.

The video showed the woman being escorted by officers to the police station. However, while walking, she sat down in protest, after which the officers dragged her away.

One female officer is seen holding the woman by her leg and then dragging her along the ground towards the police station.

The woman is said to be differently-abled and had come to the SP's office with a complaint following a dispute with her husband.

However, instead of lodging her complaint, she tried to climb the wall of the SP office, according to the police.

After the video went viral, SP Keshav Chandra Goswami took cognisance of the matter and ordered a departmental inquiry into the incident.
