A cop who stopped Gujarat MLA Kishore Kanani’s son for driving in violation of curfew rules has resigned from the force after being allegedly fed up of the system. The woman constable was earlier transferred after the incident. Meanwhile, I_Support_Sunita_Yadav began trending on twitter after netizens came out in support of her
An audio clip of their heated exchange went viral on social media in which Gujarat Health Minister Kumar Kanani’s son Prakash is arguing with the constable Sunita Yadav. She had earlier stopped five of his friends for driving in a car without a mask and in violation of curfew. She also called up her superior who reprimanded her. The frustrated cop later resigned.
The incident allegedly took place around 10.30 at Mangadh Chowk in Surat on Wednesday night. In the audio clip, the men who confronted the constable are heard saying that they had the power to “make her stand at the same place for 365 days”. They then called up Prakash. The constable shouts back that she is not their slave or a servant of their fathers that they can make her stand there for 365 days.
Media reports quoted MLA Kumar Kanani as saying that his son was on his way to the civil hospital as his father-in-law who was under treatment for COVID-19 was critical.
He said when his son requested her to let him go, she argued why the vehicle had ‘MLA’ written on it. He said both sides should have shown better understanding.
