An inquiry has been ordered by the Mumbai police into the alleged incident of cops brutally assaulting two Muslim boys in custody in the Bandra police station on Saturday and a constable telling them to go back to Pakistan, reported The Indian Express.

The police has however said that the two youths Asif Shaikh and Danish Shaikh, both 19 year old, were taken to the police station for a scuffle and assaulting a cop.

After the alleged assault by the police, Asif had to be hospitalised and Danish was left injured, states the report.

The report quotes Deven Bharti, Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), as saying, "DCP Zone IX has started his inquiry. He should be given some time to speak to both sides. We are recording statements of the so-called victims and also of the police officers. If there are allegations, they should come forward with some proof."

Asif, who is indergoing treatment at the Bhabha hospital in Bandra, told The Indian Express, “They had handcuffed me. I was stripped and beaten by eight police officers. At one point they threatened to use oil as a tool to torture…I cried and begged them to stop. I even questioned about the reasons to beat me up. That agitated them further.”
