Delhi Police assault on General Electric whistleblower Seema Sapra at Oberoi Maidens Hotel on 23 June 2014.

On 23 June 2014, General Electric whistleblower Seema Sapra who was then in a wheel-chair unable to walk with a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle was assaulted and dragged out of her hotel room at Maidens Hotel by a male policeman and several women in civilian clothes. Her mobile phone sim card was destroyed. Her laptop was destroyed. She was threatened with physical harm. She was essentially abducted and taken in a police jeep by another group of policemen and the women in civilian clothes to Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital in Civil Lines. There the police and a doctor attempted to create a false medical record about Seema Sapra. After Ms Sapra told the doctors that there were Delhi High Court orders directing the Police Commissioner to protect her, she was released from illegal custody and allowed to leave.

Below are some pictures that she managed to take that day on her phone camera of the persons including Delhi policemen and policewomen who assaulted her. Pictures of the destroyed laptop are also reproduced.
