Probe ordered as woman complains against UP’s 1090 official

Lucknow, Jan 14 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a probe and directed the repatriation of the incharge of the ‘1090 Women Power Line’ on the complaint of a college girl, a home department official said.

The young woman said the official, Raghvendra Pratap Singh, was allegedly sending her objectionable messages on WhatsApp, he said.

The official has been repatriated to his parent department and the 1090 service inspector general of police Navneit Sikera asked to probe the matter.

The 1090 Women Power Line is a ‘one state-one number’ round-the-clock service to handle women’s harassment by vulgar and abusive callers and stalkers in Uttar Pradesh.

While the government has been saying the service is a success, opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh dub it an eyewash aimed at keeping favourite officials posted in Lucknow.
