Days after a shocking video showing the Uttar Pradesh police personnel misbehaving with a woman in a police van, another horrific video went viral on Wednesday showing a few goons beating up the Muslim friend of that victim.
In the video clip, which has gone viral on the social media, the Muslim youth is seen being cornered by a group of unidentified youth while a policeman questions him about his background. The alleged right-wing group members then kick and punch him. They are also heard threatening him with dire consequences.
“Padhai kar raha hai ya love jihad kar raha hai…? Chun-chun ke marenge abhi….[Are you here to study or for love jihad? We will eliminate you one by one],” says one of the men while others film the incident on their phones.
Here’s the video:

Meerut Victim Recounts Horror
“The main attacker, a man called Manish Lohia, even threatened to shoot me. Those people beat me until blood began dripping from my eyes and nose, but they did not care. They kept hitting me in my private parts, and I feared that I will not survive. My eyes have been bleeding continuously since that day, and I have difficulty breathing,” the man told NDTV.
The girl revealed more things about the horrific incident!
The girl has also alleged that the cops even asked her to file a rape case against her Muslim friend. Talking to the media, the girl claimed that she and her friend were studying in his home when few goons locked her in a room and took the boy outside and started thrashing him.
The girl further alleged that the men said how could they marry as she was a Hindu and the boy was a Muslim. Police arrived after some time and “a lady constable, without paying any attention to what I wanted to say, took me along,” further said the girl.
The video which had gone viral earlier this week showed a lady constable hitting a girl in a police vehicle for befriending a Muslim man. Both the girl and the boy are reportedly medical students.

Irresponsible & insensitive behaviour by UP cops won’t be tolerated – UP Director General of Police Om Prakash Singh
Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police Om Prakash Singh termed the incident as an act of gross imprudence by a “few errant cops”
“Irresponsible and insensitive behaviour by UP cops will not be tolerated. The job of a policeman is to maintain the highest standards of probity, and it must be upheld at all times. Corrective action is being taken,” he tweeted. The four police personnel seen assaulting the woman in the previous video have been suspended, pending an investigation.
The erring constables, including a woman personnel, were suspended.

Awaaz Nation’s Take!
The police taking part in the agenda of these lawless activists is threat to democracy. Strict action should be taken against these police officers.
Nobody is allowed to take law into their own hands just because they think the person on the receiving end of the blows has committed a crime. It is illegal in India and a punishable offence.
Law and order situation needs to be improved in the country to stop these goons from committing these crimes with such impunity.
We at Awaaz Nation condemn such acts and demand strict action against accused!
