In yet another horrific incident that happened in broad daylight and this time in the presence of policemen, a man was mercilessly beaten and eventually killed by an angry mob in UP’s Shamli district.
The video depicts a youngster surrounded by cops being smashed by wrongdoers inside a police vehicle. He is then forcefully dragged out of the vehicle and beaten ruthlessly once again.
The shocking incident was reported from Hathchoya village in Jhinjhana area where the victim by the name of Tarashpal, got into some serious spat with some local men after consuming alcohol. What happened next was a disaster. The men started ripping Tarashpal apart and then they informed the UP police about it.
But despite the cops arriving and keeping Tarashpal inside the police vehicle, the angry mob didn’t stop as they kept on thrashing him, which allegedly led to his death. Tarashpal’s family members had later staged a protest and then demanded that miscreants be arrested.
“The law and order situation is grim in Uttar Pradesh ever since the formation of Yogi Adityanath government. Things can be assessed by the fact that the chief minister of the state himself is an accused in a murder case.
The BJP government had sought six months’ time to improve the situation. It has now been more than 19 months and the things have only deteriorated. Our advice to CM Yogi is, resign immediately and return to your math (temple),” said UP Congress Spokesperson Anshu Awasthi.
Describing UP’s law and order ‘jungle raj’, Samajwadi Party Spokesperson Anurag Bhadaurai said, “It has become a jungle raj in the state after the BJP came into power. Jail inmates are being served liquor and bullets and people are being lynched in front of the police. The SP of the concerned region should be suspended immediately for such a serious laxity.”
Ajay Kumar, SP, Shamli, told News18 that all the policemen present at the scene of the incident have been suspended. “We have come to know about the video in which a person is being beaten in presence of the police. All the policemen seen in the video have been suspended for their laxity. A departmental inquiry will also be conducted,” Kumar said, adding, “There were reports that the person had died in front of the police, but that is not true.”
