In Uttar Pradesh's Siddharthnagar district, a cop was seen brutally thrashing a man after the latter failed to produce documents of his motorcycle.
In the viral video, the motorist could be seen being brutally assaulted by the sub-inspector and constable. In the video, the victim could also be heard pleading the cops to let him off and saying that he would produce the required documents later. However, he was physically beaten and verbally abused, and even pinned down by the cop.
The two Uttar Pradesh Police officers have been suspended after the video went viral and a probe has been ordered against them.
On August 22, in a similar incidence, a woman was admitted to the hospital after she was brutally thrashed by the cops in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur.
The episode was captured on the CCTV camera. The incident began with the woman, a resident of Panki area in the city having an argument with a policewoman outside her residence. During the argument the woman cop could be seen slapping the woman, and when she tried to retaliate, she was taken to the police station by both the woman cops. The victim was slapped by the police officers in public.
Back on June 27, a video released on social media found two prisoners charged with murder flaunting pistols and making provocative statements against the Yogi Adityanath government. Brazenly walking around the premises, the inmates could be seen posing for the camera, panning across jail compound, ostentatiously showing drugs and then shoving it off into the pockets.
Apart from brandishing pistols, the prisoners were seen getting outside food and consuming alcohol within the premises. The prisoner was also seen talking about turning the jail into an office. The Uttar Pradesh home department, however, came up with a bizarre clarification saying the pistol was apparently "made of clay" and looked real because one of the two inmates is a "good painter". The statement also issued a clarification on the food being laid out for these inmates.
