UP cops arrest cracker seller; young girl desperately begs police to release her father

Several state governments have banned the sale of firecrackers during Diwali, and the police have taken a strict stand on this order and necessary actions to crack down on the sales of crackers. In UP’s Bulandshahr, the police seem to have gotten carried away as they went a fierce rampage while cracking down on firecracker sellers. Amidst the chaos, one video has gone viral on social media and drawn severe backlash towards the UP police for their insensitive behavior.

In the viral video, the police officers can be seen vandalizing roadside stalls selling firecrackers in a market in Bulandshahr. The cops also arrest one firecracker seller, but the vendor’s young daughter is seen desperately begging the cops to let him go. Without paying any heed to the young girl’s cries, the cops take her father into the jeep.

UP Police crack down on cracker sellers; young children’s cries ignored

The girl is seen hugging her father, but the cops force him into the police jeep. The girl then starts banging her head to the car, as she begged constantly to let her father go. But all her attempts fail as the police move her aside and go about doing the arrest.

The incident took place in a busy market in Khurja area in Bulandshahr, which is one of the 13 cities in UP where there is a blanket ban on crackers.

He said the police have been directed to deal with the matter with sensitivity and empathy.

After the tweet went viral and received severe backlash online, the Bulandshahr Police official Twitter handle tweeted that the head constable Brijbir has been sent to the police line for insensitive behavior towards young kids while detaining cracker sellers.
