8) You are working as Superintendent of Police. Recently it was alleged that a woman constable from your office was found assaulting a teenage girl at a function. It was also found that the girl was assaulted because she raised legitimate questions about not allowing her to attend the function which was restricted to people of a particular caste alone. A video was found where the woman constable was found thrashing and abusing the girl. She was heard saying she would not allow the girl inside as girl was wearing inappropriate dress and was from a different caste.

The girl has registered complaint with you and is seeking justice. At the same time a group representing the caste of woman constable is requesting you to not to take any action against her as she belongs to a poor family and is the sole breadwinner in her family.
