Charu Nigam

Hours after she was reduced to tears following an argument with BJP MLA from Gorakhpur Dr Radha Mohan Das Agarwal, IPS Charu Nigam hit back with a post on her Facebook page which went viral and being widely shared by people expressing solidarity.

"My tears are not sign of my weakness.

"My training hasn't taught me to be weak. I just did not expect that my SP city Ganesh Saha Sir would outrightly reject the irrational argument and talk about my injury.

"Before sir came, I was the senior most officer in police there but when sir came and stood by the force, I got emotional", she said in FB post.

The post has been shared by more than 840 people and has received comments from as many as 281 people - who mostly expressed their solidarity with the woman cop.

Dipesh Rana, one FB user in his comment said, "Women may not be so weak. I have also described this incident on prime minister email id. Explain to MLA about the way in which women are spoken", he said.

Rajiv Bandhu, another FB user said, "Stand firmly behind you, people of this country wont let such irresponsible insensitive politicians to hurt officers like u !"

IPS Charu Nigam got into an argument with BJP lawmaker Radha Mohan Das Agarwal from the home turf of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Sunday afternoon.

The entire incident was video-recorded and the footage where the BJP MLA was seen asking the woman IPS officer not to cross her limits was soon available to viewers through different platforms.

In the footage shot by journalists, Dr Agarwal is seen repeatedly shouting at the officer, "Main aapse baat nahin kar raha hoon... mujhe tum kuch na batao. Chup raho tum! Bardasht ke bahar mat jao (I am not speaking to you. Don't tell me anything. You keep quiet. Don't cross your limits)".

Agarwal can also be seen in the video repeatedly wagging his finger at the officer.

After SP city Ganesh Saha then arrived on the spot, Nigam is seen taking a handkerchief and wiping her tears.

Ironically, the BJP MLA who is also a doctor, has refused to apologise, claiming he was upset over alleged police action against a child and a 70-year-old women.

“I am upset that a 70-year-old woman and a child were beaten. I will not apologise. Why is innocent people getting beaten up not the issue instead of me shouting at an officer? No one is looking at my side of the story", he said.
