Three cops were suspended for allegedly thrashing two men after their auto bumped into a police vehicle in Mukherjee Nagar, New Delhi on Sunday.
It is alleged that the policeman dragged the driver and his son out of their auto and thrashed them for 'no reason'.
Everyone can see- the old man did not harm any police officer. In fact, his son, a 16-year old was not at all aggressive yet they both were beaten mercilessly— Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) June 16, 2019
