A video surfaced online is making the rounds on social media showing an inhumane act of Indian Army soldier being brutally beaten allegedly by Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers in West Bengal’s Hooghly district.
The victim identified as Praveen Kumar Rajak, posted with Rashtriya Rifles in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district. The Indian soldier had come home for holidays to spend some quality time with his family members but little did he know that he would face such a terrible experience. The shocking incident happened at the construction site of his house in Bhadreswar.
Soldier Rajak shared his ordeal, saying that TMC goons demanded a big donation of Rs 1 lakh from him. After failing to give, the goons threatened that the construction workers would not be permitted to fetch water from a nearby public tap.
He said only after refusing to admit their demands, he was thrashed by the mob with ‘spade and bamboo sticks’.
He also named Shamu Paswan and Marko Paswan among the eight who attacked him and said the local councillor is also connected with the extortion racket.
Rajak filed an FIR soon after but has ‘alleged inaction’ on part of the authorities. Sadly, no arrests have been made so far.
Praveen’s brother named Pankaj Kumar Rajak said, “If such shameful things are happening to our soldiers, then just think what is going to happen to us.”
