Police constable Sunita Yadav, who was in the news after she pulled up Minister of State for Health Kishore Kanani’s son Prakash for driving in violation of curfew norms, posted a tweet saying that she will not apologise to anyone.
Yadav, against whom a departmental inquiry was initiated after an altercation with the minister’s son, made the tweet after she visited the police headquarters early on Sunday. “What should I apologise for? What for? I will not apologise,” Yadav tweeted in Hindi.
In another tweet, she called the police corrupt and a slave of politicians.
“Many in the system are willing and happy to be the slaves of politicians because for them self respect and uniform is not as important as money. It is on the basis of this yardstick that a corrupt and weak system measures its officials but we will not bow down,” Yadav tweeted.
She further said in another tweet that she was working for the government and not someone’s dad. “There may be others who are willing to be slaves of politicians but we will not compromise on our self respect. I have taken a vow to be loyal to the uniform and the country. So why should I apologise, never,” she said in the tweet.

A video of the incident that went viral showed an argument between Yadav and Prakash and his friends. Yadav had stopped a car in which Prakash’s friends were travelling as they were violating curfew norms and were not wearing a mask. The youth called up Prakash who soon reached the spot and an argument ensued. Prakash, and two of his friends were arrested on Sunday in connection with an altercation and released on bail. Yadav was transferred.
Yadav later resigned from the post but her resignation has not been accepted.
