A woman from Arunachal Pradesh, who had a miscarriage, was harassed by a police officer when she and her family were on their way to finish medical procedures and cremate the foetus, her sister has alleged.
In a letter to the Delhi Police Commissioner, the woman said her sister suffered a miscarriage and the unborn child was handed to the family on March 23.
However, while they were returning with the foetus, they were stopped by a police sub-inspector and were detained at the police station, despite presenting the necessary documents, the complaint said.
The woman also claimed that the family had attempted to register a complaint over the alleged harassment at a police station in Dwarka but it was not registered.
She demanded action against the police officials for alleged “harassment” and refusal to accept a complaint.
According to the police, a security guard had informed them about the presence of a foetus in Dwarka Sector-12 Market, prompting an inquiry.
The foetus was handed over to a doctor and after necessary medical procedures was cremated by the family.
