In yet another example of police atrocities during the lockdown, a video of policemen in Meerut overturning vegetable carts on the street has surfaced on social media. The video was shot from a height, possibly a balcony or a terrace, and was posted on Twitter by an NDTV journalist.
One of the policemen who overturned a vegetable cart was armed, while some others in the contingent were dressed in riot gear. Nobody else can be seen on the street.
“This is from an area close to a COVID-19 hotspot... I have asked a senior police officer in the area to carry out a formal inquiry,” senior police officer Akhilesh Narayan Singh was quoted as saying by NDTV. “Many aspects to this video have emerged and I have asked that all these be taken into consideration in the probe.”
