This was a scene borrowed from a masala Bollywood film of yesteryear, but the reality is nothing less than chilling.
It showed just how brutal Mumbai cops have become in recent times.
On Monday, the Mumbai Police ordered an investigation into a viral video of its men mercilessly thrashing a couple who had reportedly arrived at Kandivali Police Station.
There are not much detail on the couple or the nature of complaint they had come to register. But an ANI video shows two policemen hitting a man inside the police station premises.
“An investigation is underway in the case, strict action will be taken against those found guilty,” a Mumbai Police official was quoted by Indian Express.
