    New Delhi (Sputnik): A day after India’s northern Uttar Pradesh Chief Yogi Adityanath alerted cops and asked that they address miscreants and anti-social elements harassing women, an Anti-Romeo drive by the state police sprung into action.

    A woman cop thrashed a man with shoe in public after Police received a complaint about some men harassing girls on their way to school in Bithur town in Uttar Pradesh, the wire agency ANI reported.

    As the woman cop flogged the man with her shoes, she shouted: “don’t you have a mother or a sister at home?" The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

    "Anti-Romeo squad had received information that some men had harassed school girls. The team immediately took action. A case has been registered and an accused has been arrested," police official Anil Kumar was quoted by ANI. 

    Many Tweeple appeared to be endorsing the action of the woman cop and said public humiliation was the best way to deal with such miscreants.

    On the other hand, some questioned her actions and quipped, the woman cop should have followed legal procedure.
