WEB DESK: A man and his wife were reportedly stripped naked by the police in Uttar Pardesh India on Thursday when they were persistent on registering an FIR for alleged robbery.
According to IBN times India, Sunil Gautam was robbed by miscreants on Wednesday night near Atta in Noida. He went to Dankaur police station in Greater Noida on Thursday to register an FIR along with his wife and baby.
The police refused to file a complaint in response to which the couple staged a protest in front of the police station. Enraged by this, the police officer allegedly beat up the couple and tore off their clothes.
After the video of the incident created a major storm on social media, the UP government under chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has now accused the dalit victims of having orchestrated the incident.
An official Twitter account belonging to the Government of UP quoting the Superintendent of Police of the Noida area said,
“Noida police is in possession of the alleged video of the alleged stripping; it clearly seen the accused disrobes/others. The witnesses present at the incident also corroborate the same; the video is circulated to undermine the efforts of the police.”
