Gwalior: A teen is beaten unconscious by a police constable who then drags him around in disturbing visuals that have emerged from a railway station in Madhya Pradesh's Gwalior.
The incident took place on Monday at a busy railway platform. The attacker, a head constable of the railway police, claims the boy is a petty thief who was caught red-handed.
In the video, the policeman is seen bashing the boy's head to the ground, picking him up by the neck and hitting him again. The crowd watches transfixed, without reacting, as the burly policeman drags the unconscious teen using a cloth around his neck.
It is not clear why the alleged thief was not taken to the police station. The constable has reportedly claimed that the boy "ran away before he could be taken to the police station".
The constable has been suspended and an inquiry has been ordered.
