17

A video showing the alleged brutality of Delhi police has gone viral on social media.

In the video, now being fervently shared on twitter, the Delhi police personnel are seen mercilessly thrashing students, who were protesting against the death of the Dalit scholar of Hyderabad University, Rohith Vemula. Rohith had committed suicide after being expelled from the university allegedly at the behest of the Union HRD Minister, Smriti Irani.

The protesting students were trying to march towards the RSS office, when they were stopped by several officers of Delhi police, who zeroed in on one male student before mercilessly thrashing him..

The police was soon joined by members of public (alleged RSS workers), who too began to assault the student.

The incident has caused huge embarrassment to the cops, who have faced many criticism for their alleged excesses against people of Delhi in the past.

The video has gone viral on social media with Delhi Police drawing flak from twitter users.

Jounalist Shekha Gupta said,

Aam Aadmy Party too was quick to use this video to launch fresh attack against the city cops, who it has locked horns since forming government in the capital last year.
