Lucknow, Sep 13 : A young man was thrashed, dragged on the road by two police personnel in eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Siddharth Nagar district, over alleged traffic violation and the entire assault has been caught on camera.
He was slapped by two policemen on Thursday as little boy looks on his uncle being mercilessly thrashed.
The two policemen have been suspended and a departmental probe has been ordered after the video went viral.
Initial reports suggest that Rinku Pandey, who was riding a motorcycle, had entered into an argument with the police personnel on Thursday afternoon when they stopped him to check his papers.
Footage filmed on a mobile phone by a bystander shows sub-inspector Virendra Mishra and head constable Mahendra Prasad beating him up and verbally abusing him.
