Mumbai: Just after a week when a traffic policeman was beaten to death in Maharashtra’s capital, another shocking video of a man attacking a cop and holding his head under water has surfaced on social media.
The incident which took place on Tuesday occurred in Thane’s Kalyan area. The victim has been identified as Nitin Dogade, who is seen struggling for his life in the video. The cop was attacked by one of the volunteers and his head was held under water. However, after he managed to come out of the immersion pond, he was assaulted by three other volunteers.
Apparently, Nitin Dogade used a baton on the crowd in order to discipline them. In retaliation, the volunteers launched an attack on him.
Charges of attempt to murder have been filed against the assaulters.
The cases of attacks on police personnel have seen an unusual rise in recent times. As many as seven cases in the last fortnight have been reported. Shiv Sena chief, Uddhav Thackeray is expected to meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis regarding the same.
