New Delhi: Congress MLA from Punjab's Fazilka constituency Davinder Singh Ghubaya was caught threatening a woman station house officer (SHO) Lovemeet Kaur over the phone during a heated argument. The incident reportedly happened on Wednesday.

In the audio accessed by MyNation, the MLA could be heard questioning the SHO for not shielding his close aide who was caught driving without proper documents.

The woman police officer was heard saying repeatedly to Ghubaya that his associates had argued with her. The local MLA then threatened the SHO, saying, "You are an SHO, not God". 

Further, Ghubaya threatened the SHO with dire consequences. He asked her to pack her bags as he would soon get her transferred. However, the officer stood by the law and said, "I did my job, you do what you have to".

When confronted over her misuse of power,  Ghubaya said, “I have many complaints against her,” and handed over the phone to his PA.

A senior official in Punjab Police told MyNation that the department has taken cognisance of the case and said that they stood by the officer for following the law.
