“The Sergeant under Lake Thana (who refused to give out his name; his vehicle no was WB 07F4194) stared down one of my female friends lecherously. She would have slapped him if he wasn’t in uniform. When she asked him not to look at her like that, he screamed at her aggressively to get out of there. Why ? He said because we had shouted at the cab driver. At that point I took out my mobile phone and started recording the incident,” he said.
As can be seen in the video below, the official come forward indicating that he intended to hit Bhattacharya for recording the incident.
“He threatened to lock us up in the lake police station. We repeatedly asked for his name
but he didn’t divulge it. He wasn’t wearing his name plate. By then passers-by who had seen the incident had gathered around in our support,” Bhattacharya said.
On 22nd November’15 – Soumendra posted on his Facebook page
“We have lodged an official written complaint with Lake Thana Kolkata Police with the OC Prasenjit Bhattacharya. I must mention that they were extremely cooperative. They have asked us to submit this video in a CD tomorrow along with the complaint.

“We were given excuses that he is doing duty there for 2 months now and he is disturbed about his son,” said Soumendra.
