In yet another case of brute misuse of power by the Uttar Pradesh police, a video is making rounds on internet wherein cops can be seen abusing and beating up a 'Hindu girl' in a car for being in an alleged relationship with a 'Muslim guy'.
The incident, which took place in Meerut, shows shameless cops from the state mercilessly attacking the girl, both verbally and physically, despite her repeated claims that she is only friends with the boy.
In the video, four cops can be seen in the car along with the girl. The officer sitting in the driver's seat was recording the video. Firstly, the officer sitting in the front seat questioned the girl, asking, "You stay here? At whose place do you stay here?"
It was then followed by the cop sitting in the driver's seat shamelessly asking the girl, "Mullah zyada pasand aa raha hai? (Are you liking Muslim more?)" The girl replied by saying, "Nahi, uncle vo dost hai. (No uncle, he is a friend)"
Before she could even complete her statement, the female officer sitting beside the victim started hitting her on the back of her head. While the girl was getting beaten, the cop sitting in the front seat started saying, "Hindu ke hote hue (expletive) mullah ka (expletive). Tujhe sharam nahi aati (Despite so many Hindus around, you indulge with Muslims. Don't you feel ashamed)"
After that, the cop sitting on the passenger seat in front asked her 'kiske yaha ruki tu', which was then followed by an act enraging the dignity and respect of the girl. The female officer, under the orders of those sitting in front her, pulled down the scarf of the girl to reveal her identity on camera.
The cop sitting on drivers seat could be heard shamelessly saying, "Isko wahi na lagaye…. Scarf neeche kar, scarf neche kar...haata hath.. (expletive) chashmo ke andar (shouldn't we slap her. Pull down her scarf, pull down her scarf. Remove your hand. What she does behind those specs)"
This is the second act of brutality shown by the UP police in the past few days which has engaged the country. But rather than taking action on this matter and suspending the accused cops in this matter, the UP government transferred them to a different area.
