The chief minister has issued clear directives to the police against raids or serving notices in matters related to simple civil cases during the night hours, an official spokesman said.

The chief minister's instruction comes in the wake of a family in Ashiyana police station area in Lucknow complaining of misbehaviour by policemen on Sunday, the spokesman said, adding SP (North) Anurag Vats had been asked to conduct an inquiry into the episode and submit a report in two days.

A woman had tweeted to the chief minister, complaining about the harassment faced by her family at the hands of local police at midnight over some dispute.

The chief minister also took note reports in a section of media of an incident of a woman being thrashed by lathis by two police constables during vehicle checking drive in the Gomti Nagar area and asked the ASP Lucknow Chakresh Misra to conduct an inquiry.

Both constables have since been placed under suspension, the spokesman added.
