Did Haryana Police abandon Dy Comm. Gauri Parasher Joshi to fend for herself?

On Sunday, Chandigarh Tribune carry a story that claimed Deputy Commissioner Gauri Parasher Joshi was left to “fend for herself” after the Dera followers took to violence following conviction of Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim in 2002 rape case.

The headline on the web story has since been changed, but the epaper carries the original headline which claims that after being outnumbered by the rampaging Dera followers, Haryana Police fled the spot, leaving Parasher Joshi to fend for herself. The report claims that it was her experience of having served in Naxal-affected district of Kalahandi in Odisha that helped her save her life and the situation too.

Nowhere in the article does it have a quote from the officer where she claims that the Haryana Police abandoned her amidst the violent crowd.

A vigilant Twitter user and an IPS officer himself, Hemant Pandey, tweeted a video where it seems that the police is trying to shield her and escort her to safety from the unruly mob.

He further clarifies that the police in the video aren’t really ‘escaping’ but taking cover from the stone-pelting mob.

He even explains how truth gets distorted by partial reporting.

Perhaps we need to hear Parasher Joshi’s side of the story too on what exactly happened.
