Bengaluru: City Police Commissioner M N Reddy rubbished claims made by former city police commissioner H T Sangliana’s daughter Rachel, that she was racially abused by two unidentified women.
Reddy told reporters that it was not a case of racial abuse, but an altercation involving Rachel and the two women.
Citing a senior police officer, Deccan Herald reported that the police sent a team to the mall, where the incident took place. “Eyewitnesses told the police that it was Rachel who triggered the incident.”
“Rachel abused the women and they retaliated. Nobody in the mall ever indulged in racial abuse,” the police said.
“We requested her to lodge a complaint but she refused to do so. She said there was no need for the complaint, thanked the police and went away,” the officer is told to have said.
Rachel had earlier claimed that two burqa-clad women had attacked her at a mall. She had also claimed that she was beaten up and that she sustained injuries on the head and face. She alleged that the women had called her a Chinese woman and said that a lesson should be taught to outsiders in Karnataka.
