The MLA argued with police that children often drink and make mistakes and that her request should be acknowledged.
In the video, the MLA Meena Kunwar can be seen staging a dharna alongside her husband Umaid Singh as the couple squatted inside the Ratanada police station in Jodhpur’s Shergarh after the police captured her nephew.
During the argument, the MLA can be heard saying that she had requested the police for the release of her nephew. The couple later argued that “all kids drink at times” and that it is not a big deal. “I had requested you to release him. I have it recorded on my phone,” said the MLA.
As the police refused to release the accused, she threatened to continue her protest at the police station while her husband kept dialing calls on his mobile phone.
Later, she warned a police personnel who was shooting a video of the entire incident. A police officer can also be heard asking the two to speak with some “humanity”, to which, MLA's husband replied saying that he won’t.
He even went on say, “Only yesterday some of the officers from this station got suspended. Did you forget that?”
Meanwhile, MLA's nephew's car which was seized by the police was released from custody after the intervention of the DCP. While the incident unfolded on Sunday night, the video is going viral today, gaining severe criticisms from people.
