Mumbai police personnel are seen roughing up man and a woman inside a police station in a video that has gone viral on social media.
The undated video shows the Andheri police roughing up a man and a woman who is screaming. However, the Andheri Police have denied charges of any wrongdoing on their part but claimed that they were just doing their duty of separating the duo engaged in a scuffle.
The police also said that both the man and the woman were in inebriated condition. The police intervened only when the man was getting hold of the woman.
The Huffington Post India quotes Nandkumar Dhumal, Senior Inspector, Andheri Police Station as saying, "The couple was under heavy influence of alcohol and was fighting with each other on the road near Andheri Metro Station. They were then brought to the police station but the two again picked up a scuffle. Police just did the duty to separate them while they were fighting."
He also claimed that the video was recorded to malign the reputation of the police force.
However, the website reports that no FIR has been lodged in the case. The parents of both the man and the woman were called to the police station after which they were released.
