A security guard working in a shopping mall in Uttar Pradesh’s capital, Lucknow, was mercilessly thrashed for simply asking a group of youths to show cinema ticket outside a theatre. One of the miscreants, Ugrasen Pratap Singh is the the son of UP’s ruling party politician.
The entire incident, which took place in Lucknow’s posh Gomtinagar area, was captured on the Mall’s CCTV camera.
In the video, a group of people are seen arguing with a security guard outside a cinema hall. Soon the conversation turns ugly and the youths begin to launch full-blown assaults on the security guards.
Our correspondent in Lucknow says that the police is reluctant to take any action against the youths as the main accused is the son of an MLA belonging to Samajwadi Party. Eye witness told jantakareporter.com that police were quick to reach the spot, but they had failed to take any action against them after realising how influential they were.
