Gonda (UP): A group of gangsters brutally beat up their rival and urinated on him in the Wazirganj area, Gonda district, Uttar Pradesh. The incident, which took place nearly a fortnight ago, came to light after a video clip went viral on social media on Friday, the police said.
The youth was beaten up after a dispute on October 31 in the Wazirganj area of Gonda on October 31. One of the attackers, identified through the video clip as Kaptan Singh, was arrested, the police said.
According to additional superintendent of police Shivraj Prajapati, as soon as the video clip of the incident surfaced on social media, a police team visited the house of the youth Shiva Singh who was beaten up and urged his family members to lodge a formal complaint against the attackers.
On the ground of the complaint, the police registered a case of attempt-to-murder, rioting, keeping illegal weapons and criminal intimidation, Prajapati said.
Police teams have been formed and the accused will soon be brought to book, Prajapati said.
The official said that there were two groups – one led by Shiva and another led by Kaptan – both were at daggers drawn. Kaptan was recently out on bail in connection with a case related to the Gangsters Act, Prajapati said, adding that there are several cases against Shiva, too.
The video shows that a group of people surrounded a youth and thrashed him to admit that he had hatched a conspiracy to kill a man called Ankit. The video clip shows that the attackers took Shiva to a forest where he is standing behind a tree.
