Video: UP cop thrashed at police station by man accused of domestic violence
An official told ANI that the family cited his ill mental health as the reason behind his violent behaviour.
A man was seen thrashing a cop inside a police station in Uttar Pradesh's Mainpuri, about 250 km from state capital Lucknow. According to news agency ANI, the man had been called by the police over a domestic violence complaint when he lost his temper and began delivering blows to the cop.
In a video tweeted by ANI, the man is seen having an argument with the cop standing in front of him when he - in a fit of rage - starts hitting the policeman. This leads to a fight that a woman constable - standing right next to them - tries to diffuse. She is also seen approaching the man with a chair in hand to deter him from attacking the cop.
An official said the family cited his ill mental health as the reason behind his violent behaviour. “He had been called on complaint of domestic violence and beat up a police official inside. His family has stated he is patient of mental illness, we will take that in account if they produce supporting documents,” Madhuvan Kumar, ASP Mainpuri, told ANI.
The man has been booked and detained, the official added.
