The DN Nagar police arrested a 28-year-old man for allegedly assaulting government officers in the rationing office. The accused identified as Shahrukh Shaikh first abused and later assaulted officials as  they objected to him shooting a video  inside the office.

According to the police, Shaikh had earlier filed a Right To Information (RTI) query in the rationing office in Andheri and when he went to pick up the RTI reply from the office on Wednesday morning, he was informed that the papers were yet to be photocopied. Shaikh was then asked to come three hours later. When he came back again to get the papers, the officers present there noticed that Shaikh had placed his phone in his shirt pocket and was shooting the incident.

“Raju Gaikwad, the rationing officer asked Shaikh to turn off his phone as it is illegal to shoot a video in a government office. Shaikh did not pay heed and continued videotaping in the office. A few officers then tried to snatch away Shaikh's phone, following which he began abusing and assaulting Gaikwad and other officers. Later, a police team by DN Nagar reached the spot and arrested Shaikh and booked him under relevant Sections of the Indian Penal Code pertaining to assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty, along with relevant Sections of the Official Secrets Act,” said a police officer.

Shaikh confessed to videotaping the incident to show the laid back attitude of the rationing officials in the department. Shaikh was produced in a local court yesterday and was sent to judicial custody.
