It goes without saying that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. But this viral video where a cop is shamelessly beating a delivery agent proves otherwise.
The video was shared by a local Twitter page, We Love Covai, and it has created outrage on the internet.
As per reports, The incident took place in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore city, where the cop slaps the Swiggy agent and snatches his phone, and walks off. The cop, identified as Sathishkumar, is a grade-II constable with the Singanallur police station.
The food delivery agent, Mohanasundaram reportedly, said he was waiting near the Fun Mall junction when a school bus hit a woman. After the driver attempted to flee from the spot, Mohanasundaram tried to stop him, which created a brief traffic jam.
“This happened yesterday evening at the fun mall signal and there was a slight traffic block due to this delivery boy and all of a sudden this Cop Started beating up the Delivery person “— We Love Covai ❤️ (@welovecovai) June 4, 2022

Please suspend the constable. May be bus related to CM. The rule is same for all..— Ch S Ramanujam (@csrjam) June 6, 2022
Though the police registered a case on Mohanasundaram’s complaint and arrested Sathish, he was suspended later, but how do we still justify this behaviour?
