Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh: Controversy Over Fetching Water Circulates as Woman Molestation, Communal Claims

A few days ago, reports emerged from Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh, claiming that a Dalit woman had been molested by a youth from a specific community, and there were allegations of police inaction. The false narrative gained traction due to a self-proclaimed local news portal, News TV 100 (@News_tv100). The news outlet tweeted about the alleged molestation incident and police inaction. However, the police report and a thorough investigation debunk the claims.

The incident centered around a disagreement between a woman from Pataunja village and a youth named Mohd. Zaheen from the same village, both competing for access to a water source. The argument escalated, resulting in a fight rather than a case of molestation. The police promptly intervened, registering a case against Zaheen under section 151 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

The allegations of molestation made by the woman were found to be baseless upon investigation. Local authorities stated that the claims were misleading and aimed at tarnishing the image of the administration. The woman’s complaints were shown to lack factual evidence, and her intent appeared to be motivated by ulterior motives.

Fatehgarh Police through their official Twitter account @fatehgarhpolice, promptly responded, clarifying the sequence of events. They revealed that the dispute between the parties was not a case of molestation but rather a fight over water rights. They emphasized that actions were taken in line with legal procedures.
