After a video showing cops being assaulted by youth for allegedly stopping them for popping wheelies, went viral, another video shows police dragging a youth, beating him and stamping him with their boots
According to sources, after almost 15 minutes of pleading to let them go home, the youths became enraged when police hurled abuses at them, calling them the Kannada equivalent of s** of a b***h. Relatives and sympathisers of the duo say that the media showed only one side of the story following which an opinion was formed against the duo.
The case will take a different turn when it reaches National Human Rights Commission with evidence as few social activists have decided to fight it.
What’s worse, one of the arrested is injured and has been admitted to hospital for an alleged bullet injury. Relatives said that the police have taken law into their hands for vengeance.
According to Sanjay Nagar Police, when the arrested Moinudeen was being questioned, he tried to assault a police inspector. Following this, he was shot in the leg in in self-defence, police allege.
