Two days back posters were pasted in and around Ranchi City threatening women of acid attacks if they were seen wearing jeans. The posters were allegedly put up by Jharkhand Mukti Sangh.
While little is known about this group but fear has engulfed women in the city who are worried about what will happen if they dress freely.
However in a shocking response the police have overlooked the entire issue and decided not take it seriously. In a comment the police said it's a handiwork of miscreants which could be investigated.
Ranchi Police need to do more than comment on the nature of the threat.
I am calling on IG Ranchi Mr. M.S. Bhatiya to order a proper investigation into the issue,
look who is behind this posters and arrest them for threatening citizens and inciting violence.
After you have signed the petition please call IG Ranchi Mr. M.S. Bhatiya - +91 9431706127 and ask him -
1. Why no investigation has been ordered yet?
2. When is he going to do it and arrest the miscreants behind it?
3. What steps is the police taking to ensure safety for citizens in the city?
Please be polite when you call.
