Get an NRI Card or (Dual) Indian Citizenship - And Receive Special Treatment in India!




In a brazen display of muscle, an Indian Police Service ("IPS") IPS officer allegedly unleashed policemen on an NRI businessman just because he overtook the cop's vehicle on the Jehanabad-Patna road on Sunday, April 18, 2010.

NRI -  the name given to those who continue to call themselves Indian and are living outside India - Sajendra Bihari Singh was on the way from Masaurhi to his native village Dharahara under the Punpun police station in Patna district. "I was carrying heavy cas and was, therefore, in a hurry to reach my home," said Sajendra, who runs a restaurant in Russia and was at his home in connection with a project to open a hotel in Patna.

Sajendra overtook the police vehicle at Bhaluan village near the Nadwan railway station and reached home. It was after the police vehicle also came screeching to a halt outside his home that he knew that IPS officer Vivek Kumar, currently posted as Jehanabad's  Assistant Superintendant of Police ("ASP"), was in that vehicle.

"Hardly had I got down from my vehicle ... The officer's bodyguards pounced on me and started raining lathis and fisticuffs on me," Sajendra said, and added they even slapped his ageing father Brij Behari Singh and brother Samyukta Bihari Singh when they tried to intervene.

As villagers assembled there, the cops took the NRI to the Parsa police station. "There, the officer himself rolled up his sleeves and thrashed me," Sajendra said, adding the officer and his bodyguards left but not before Vivek warning him to keep his mouth shut.

A humiliated Sajendra Behari, however, tried to lodge a written complaint with the Parsa police station.

To no avail though.

"I have filed a complaint case in the court," he said and showed the injuries on his back, hand and face. While ASP Kumar on Monday afternoon didn't take calls on his mobile and his landline phone attendant said he was asleep, Jehanabad Superintendant of Police ("S.P.), Chandrika Prasad said Sajendra was detained for rash driving but was let off "with due respect" after he introduced himself.

ADG (HQ) P.K. Thakur, with whom Sajenndra spoke to while appearing live on the TV channel, said he has asked him to submit a written complaint so that a probe could be initiated into his allegations.

"Let him give a complaint; appropriate step would be taken," he added.
