Who are the torturers in Delhi carnage anthem video? Muslim boy names Jyoti Nagar SHO
Just over a year ago, a video…. showed five Muslim men, including Waseem, lying injured on a road in Kardam Puri, struggling to sing the national anthem. A group of lathi-wielding policemen, their faces hidden from view, surround and assault them, even as the men sob. One of the men, Faizan, died from his injuries two days later….
“Some policemen came and began hitting me with lathis,” Waseem told Newslaundry. “They were soon joined by other cops who started hitting me with rifle butts.”… As Waseem lay bleeding, he alleges in his complaint, Shailendra Tomar, the SHO, arrived. Waseem recognised Tomar, who then said, “Take this rascal and put him where other katuas are lying.” He was dragged away to where the other four Muslims lay on the road. There, he alleges, Tomar “told his men these people need to be set on fire, and then thrown in the drain like others”.
Another policeman, whom Waseem recognised from doing the rounds in Kardam Puri, said, “Before setting the katuas on fire, let me make a video on how to get freedom. I need to send it to the minister.” Tomar directed one of his men to fetch petrol, Waseem’s complaint says. But then a policeman said he could see someone shooting a video from a rooftop….
