A poor man was beaten for not wearing a mask properlyShould our police force not be called to book for showing cruelty against poor people?. An incident happened in Indore in which a 35-year-old poor rickshaw driver, Krishna Keyer, was beaten up by two police constables on the road in Madhya Pradesh. However, both the policemen- Kamal Prajapat and Dharmendra Jat have been suspended. In the video viralled on social media, these two policemen are purportedly seen thrashing the man on the street even as his teenage son and some women beg for mercy. It is said he was on his way to the hospital to meet his father and his mask had slipped off his nose. The policemen caught him and insisted that he come to the police station with them; when he refused, they started beating him up. His son was crying for help but nobody came to support him and these policemen kept on beating him.
It is also said that their senior officer has said that the video was edited to tarnish the image of the police.
