Two women constables and other male constable were on duty in Hargaon police station area. Two men named Prabhas Tiwari and Rohit Jaiswal who were passing by the road, allegedly made some comments on one of the woman constables.

Prabhas later consumed poison and also denied all charges before dying. While he was rushed to the district government hospital, his condition worsened and he was subsequently referred to a hospital in Lucknow.
Tiwari, unfortunately, died at the second hospital while undergoing his treatment.
The female police officer had accused Prabhas of molesting her. After the matter was reported, cops took the man into their custody and allegedly thrashed him. However, he was later allowed to go.
Nonetheless, Prabhas was scared after the incident and was also unable to absorb this humiliation that he decided to consume poison.
In his dying declaration given to the media, Prabhas named the lady police constable and said:
It was not my fault. I was on my way home after buying a few things. She was going somewhere and was drunk. She just took off on me. First, she slapped me and then, threatened to me saying, I’ll tell you who I am.
Thereafter, she took me to the police station and made me sit there the whole night. I wasn’t able to bear the humiliation I faced without even doing anything. I have not done anything wrong, hence, I decided to consume poison.
The woman constable should be stripped off her duty as she does not deserve it.
