An upright woman police officer was transferred punitively by the Madhya Pradesh government after she forced a youth with political connections to remove black films from his car window.

Putting any kind of tinted films on car windows, irrespective of the degree of visibility, is a direct violation of a 2012 Supreme Court order.

A video that has now gone viral on social media shows the officer, Usha Somvanshi, publicly rebuking the youth for violating the Supreme Court order. She ordered the films to be removed immediately.

The youth, confident in getting his way by the sheer power of his political influence, started misbehaving with the police personnel.

Officer Somvanshi then ordered her subordinates to arrest him, in compliance with the law.

The youth is seen claiming in the video that Officer Somvanshi had slapped him, but he refused to substantiate that claim when he was questioned further.

How did the Madhya Pradesh government deal with such an honest officer? By transferring her to CSP Jabalpur as punishment.

This comes days after another upright woman officer Sreshtha Thakur was transferred to Hardoi by the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for daring to cross swords with BJP politicians.
