NEW DELHI: Two Railway policemen posted at Old Delhi station have been shifted to police lines for alleged negligence and meting out "unprofessional treatment" to a 16-year-old mentally-challenged girl from Rohtak.

Constables Parminder and Ranvir had found the girl shivering in cold at Old Delhi Railway station seven months back.

Police said they had temporarily accommodated the girl on the station but did not take the follow up action. Later during a probe, the duo were spotted with the girl on the platform over two days in CCTV footage.

Explaining the sequence of events, a police official said, the girl had boarded a train from Rohtak and reached Old Delhi station. Two days later, she boarded a train back to Rohtak and reached to her family, said the officer.

Meanwhile, the girl's parents had registered a case of missing persons at a police station in Rohtak and when she returned, they approached the police with her.

She levelled serious allegations against the two policemen.

Following this, the Rohtak Police visited Old Delhi Railway police station and the CCTV footage showed the presence of girl with the two cops.

The footage was taken by Rohtak Police and a report was prepared on the basis of it but no action was taken.

However, later the Railway police instituted a probe in which the cops were found guilty and were sent to police lines last week and the departmental enquiry has been instituted.
