#TwitterSeva is in Action : Uttar Pradesh’s @bastipolice saves life of Kanchan
Recently we talked about the revolutionary step taken by UP Police to launch #TwitterSeva under dynamic leadership of Akhilesh Yadav. Under this Seva citizens can register their complaints on @Uppolice or 122 new verified twitter handles, related to district police, 18 DIGs, and 8 IGs. Since its inception, people have started tagging UP Police on twitter for help.
An incident, recently came to light on Saturday when Basti police got a message on their twitter account apprising them about a woman being locked in her room by her husband for eight months and that her condition was deteriorating.
On seeing the tweet, SP Kripa Shankar Singh directed Purani Basti inspector Ravindra Kumar Gautam to look into the matter. When Gautam reached the spot and entered the house, he was shocked to see Kanchan’s plight. He immediately informed his seniors and rushed Kanchan to the district hospital.
“The woman was locked in a room for the last eight months. Anything could have happened to her had the police not released her in time,” said Basti SP Kripa Shankar Singh. He further said that during questioning Kanchan’s husband Jagdev, a tea vendor, revealed that he had locked his wife in the room after she suffered a paralysis attack eight months ago while delivering a baby.
The incident took place at Rasoolpur locality of Basti district where police found the victim Kanchan, 36, in a critical condition. She was pale, exhausted, underweight and also suffering from jaundice as well as other complications.
Kanchan was admitted to the district hospital where she is undergoing treatment. Speaking about her condition, the doctors said, “She is underweight and suffering from jaundice. She is currently on intravenous medications.” Meanwhile, police have taken her husband Jagdev, a tea vendor, into custody and are questioning him. Prakash Sony, the person who brought this to the notice of UP Police is thankful to the officers for their swift response.
Thanks to #DigitalCM Akhilesh Yadav’s #TwitterSeva , yet another life has been saved.
