4 Muslims arrested for molesting ASHA workers, policewoman conducting lockdown survey in Haryana

The police have arrested four men – Javed, Nadeem, Isaq and Azad –  from Indira Colony in Panchkula, Haryana for molesting, assaulting and threatening a team of ASHA and anganwadi workers while they were conducting a survey to ensure poor and elderly affected most by the lockdown receive Government benefits.

The accused also tried to drag a policewoman inside a house, injuring her in the process. They were produced in a local court, which sent them to 14 days in police custody. Efforts are on to nab at least 5 other accomplices.

Panchkula Sector 14 police station incharge Joginder Singh said, “The team had visited the colony for door-to-door survey to ensure everybody receives benefits announced by the government amid lockdown for needy people. Suddenly, a group of nine youths started misbehaving with social health workers.”

“Subsequently, a police team, led by Sector 16 police post incharge Jadgeesh reached the spot for protection, as requested by health workers. But these youths were still shouting and then an attempt was made to drag a lady policeman inside a house. She sustained injuries,” the police officer said.
