In a shocking video that has gone viral on social media, two police personnel can be seen brutally thrashing a 35-year-old man for not wearing a mask in public in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore. The man has been identified as 35-year-old Krishna Keyer, an auto-rickshaw driver. The incident took place in Firoz Gandhi Nagar under Pardesipura police station area of Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

In the video shot by a bystander, cops can be seen pinning him down, kicking and punching him mercilessly while his son can be heard pleading with the cops to let him go.

According to the media reports, when the two policemen saw Krishna not wearing a mask, they approached him to seek an explanation for violating the Covid-19 norm. However, the auto driver allegedly grabbed the collar of one of the constables and started abusing and assaulting him and his colleagues. In reply, the cops began thrashing him.

Nevertheless, after the video went viral, both the policemen have been suspended and a City Superintendent of Police (CSP) has been asked to investigate the matter.

Meanwhile, the victim's son said, "My father was badly beaten up because his mask was below his chin. They [police] didn't listen to me."
