Eighteen days after Padmini, a traffic warden on duty, was allegedly  attacked in the city, the police have failed to arrest the accused. Tired by  the apathy, she is now planning to approach the Home Minister,  State Women’s Commission and the Human Rights Commission.

Speaking at a press conference here on Wednesday, Padmini said the current investigation was not satisfactory. “It should be suspected whether the police were trying to cover up the case. I would launch an indefinite strike in front of the City Police Commissioner office if the accused is not arrested soon,” she said.

The traffic warden said she testified before the police several times. “They want to somehow find any inconsistency in my account of the incident that happened on November 2. They have no sympathy towards a woman who was attacked on the street,” she said. Padmini alleged that her phone calls were being tapped.
