Delhi Police suspend cop, caught on video, kicking men offering namaz on road

New Delhi/IBNS: The Delhi Police has suspended a sub-inspector who was allegedly caught in a video assaulting men offering namaz in North Delhi's Inderlok area on Friday.

In a shocking 34-second video, the officer, in charge of a police post in Delhi's Inderlok area, is seen trying to disperse a few men praying near a mosque in the neighbourhood.

In what seemed like a sudden burst of rage, he started kicking two men from behind and even hit the second on his neck.

Talking to reporters, Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) M K Meena said, “In the incident which happened today, the police post-in-charge who was seen in the video has been suspended with immediate effect. Necessary disciplinary action is also being taken.”

The video went viral on social media platforms. The cop was even seen shouting at them to get up and leave the area.

A departmental inquiry has been started in the case.

Several angry protesters later blocked the road to demand action against the cop.

According to reports, the men were praying outside because the mosque was filled.

Security has been beefed up in the area to avoid any further tension.
