Three more men have been arrested in the case involving the beating and urinating on a man in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut. This takes the total number of arrests to four -- one person was arrested yesterday. The police had filed a case after a video of the attack was widely circulated.
The victim, who had just taken his intermediate exam, was attacked on November 13 when he was visiting his aunt.
He had failed to return home that night. When he turned up the next morning, bruised and battered, he told his family about the beating, but not the urination incident. He revealed all when the video surfaced a few days later.
In the video, the men can be seen drinking and beating the victim and then one person urinated on him. The victim can be heard pleading with them not to record his humiliation. The attackers included two of his friends, his family has alleged.
A First Information Report has been filed against seven people, four of whom have been identified. "The main accused has been arrested," a police officer said yesterday.
The cause of the fight is still not known.
The family earlier lived in Jagriti Vihar area, where the man came in contact with some of his attackers.
Of the seven accused, two were his friends and other two were acquaintances. Three of the suspects are yet to be identified.
