Belying the claims of the UT Police that the police promptly reaches out to persons in need, a doctor couple working at the PGIMER on Sunday alleged police inaction on a complaint they had filed on Saturday against an unidentified person who threw red chilli powder at the duo.
According to the doctor couple, Dr Neeraja Bhardwaj, of the Department of Anesthesia, PGIMER and her husband Dr Anil Bharadwaj, of the Department of General Surgery, PGIMER and both residents of Sector 24, on Saturday at about 7.30 pm they were taking a stroll in the their sector when an unidentified man on a motorcycle threw red chilli powder in their eyes.
According to Dr Anil, since he was wearing spectacles, he did not feel the irritation, but his wife, Dr Neerja, felt the irritation in her eyes and told her husband about it.
Immediately they called on the 100 number but no police official turned up. Later they complained to the Police post in Sector 24, but that was also of little help, alleged the duo.
