Punjab Police brutality...

Jalandhar: Several personnel of the Punjab Police were caught on camera beating up a woman and her elderly father in Tarn Taran on Sunday. The young woman had reportedly complained of sexual harassment. She said that she had been harassed by truck drivers, however instead the Police ended up beating both the woman and her father and took the side of the truck drivers.

ਰਾਜੇ ਸੀਹ ਮੁਕਦਮ ਕੁਤੇ ॥ ਜਾਇ ਜਗਾਇਨਿ੍ ਬੈਠੇ ਸੁਤੇ ॥
Raaje sheeh mukaḏam kuṯe.
Jaae jagaaen baiṯẖe suṯe.
The kings are tigers, and their officials are dogs;
they go out and awaken the sleeping people to harass them.

ਚਾਕਰ ਨਹਦਾ ਪਾਇਨਿ੍ ਘਾਉ ॥ ਰਤੁ ਪਿਤੁ ਕੁਤਿਹੋ ਚਟਿ ਜਾਹੁ ॥
Cẖaakar nahḏaa pāenih gẖaao. Raṯ piṯ kuṯiho cẖatt jaahu.

The public servants inflict wounds with their nails. The dogs lick up the blood that is spilled.

ਜਿਥੈ ਜੀਆਂ ਹੋਸੀ ਸਾਰ ॥ ਨਕੀਂ ਵਢੀਂ ਲਾਇਤਬਾਰ ||੨||

Jithai jeeaa(ʼn) hosee saar. Nakee(ʼn) vadẖee(ʼn) laaiṯbaar. ||2||

But there, in the Court of the Lord, all beings will be judged. Those who have violated the people's trust will be disgraced; their noses will be cut off. ||2||
(Guru Nanak Dev Jee - Ang 1288)
