A loaded pistol of woman IPS Officer is missing since the Delhi Court Clash
A woman IPS officer in uniform was allegedly assaulted during the clash between lawyers and Police at Tis Hazari court in Delhi on Saturday. Her loaded pistol is also missing since the clash. The clash between two groups led to massive, unprecedented protests and allegations from both sides.
Footage from the CCTV reveals that the lawyers are setting fires on vehicles outside the room where police officers have locked themselves in for protection from a mob of lawyers.
Delhi Police hasn’t registered any complaint in the case of a woman IPS officer
Delhi Police hasn’t registered any complaint in the case of a woman IPS officer who has alleged assault by lawyers at Tis Hazari Court even after four days of the Delhi Court Clash.
The Woman IPS officer has said that her loaded 9 mm service pistol is missing since Saturday. But Delhi Police has allegedly refused to register an FIR even in this matter.
A senior officer said that the woman Indian Police Service officer told her colleagues that making a formal complaint will not get her any results and she will make a fool of herself.
Police claim that officially they can’t take any action until a formal complaint is registered. But in cases of sexual assault, action can be taken by police on their own.
More than 30 people have been injured in the Delhi Court Clash.
The violence started with a fight over a parking spot when a policeman asked three lawyers to remove their car parked at the wrong spot. The fight then escalated with a rumor and angered other lawyers, resulting in a big fight between the two groups where more than 30 people got injured in the Delhi Court Clash.

As per the report, lawyers were so agitated that a constable who had stopped their colleagues from parking the car was asked to change from his uniform to civvies. The constable was made to sit among convicts in lock-up after he changed his uniform for protection from a raging mob of lawyers.
The police have registered 5 First Information Reports based on the complaints from the lawyers, but only one has been registered for 21 policemen injured in the clashes.
