Shahpur Police inspector Javed Mushapiri who has been taking novel and innovative steps to make policing more citizen friendly has been allegedly threatened by a sitting MLA.
Sources say that the MLA threatened that in the next three months he will see where he will be you may be honest but I know how to row you into controversy.
Sources have also confirmed that Mushapiri decided to resign and also met the higher police officials and acquainted them with what has happened.
The story seems to be very similar like that of the movie Singham where in Jaykant Shikre tries to harass the honest police officer. Some scenes could also be inspired from the same movie, but at the same this is a very dangerous precedent.
If the police can’t work on their own and with political interference at every step, the morale of the officers will certainly come down.
Javed Mushapiri also had spats earlier when he was the Traffic North inspector when he has commenced the drive against errant auto drivers. That time as well the drive was stopped due to political interference and in fact after which the drive was stopped. The auto drivers also later hooted at Mushapiri and said Kya kar lega be tu?
So it is not new that this officer is facing such interference from elected representatives. Citizens must be aware of whom they elect.
Do we want a Jaykant Shikre or we need to protect honest police officers, after all the choice is yours.
