In an eye-lowering incident, some photographers and video journalists, believed to be from local media organisations, were allegedly found to be taking pictures and making videos of a woman constable while she was changing her clothes.
According to a report of Zee News, the woman constable, who was posted on Assembly duty along with other lady cops, was changing clothes in an empty classroom of Zilla Parishad High school, Mandhadam village, which was allocated to them.
