Five UP cops booked for violating, assaulting man under suspicion of cattle slaughtering

Uttar Pradesh: In a horrific incident, five cops were booked for allegedly torturing a 20-year-old man in custody in Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh, officials said on Sunday.

As per a report quoting the victim's mother, the cops shoved a stick inside the victim's rectum and forced the victim to undergo repeated electric shocks.

Rehan, who is a part-time vegetable vendor, is suffering from repeated seizures due to the alleged assault, a doctor treating him said on condition of anonymity.

A case was registered against the five persons after a preliminary inquiry revealed the allegations against them to be true.

The action has been taken against a sub-inspector and four constables of the Kakrala police outpost under the Alapur police station.

In the victim's complaint to the police, they alleged that Rehan was kept in custody for several hours and released on the same day after they paid a bribe of ₹5,000 to the cops.

"On Friday, his condition deteriorated and he was taken to a hospital in Bulandshahr," a family member said, seeking anonymity.

Budaun additional superintendent of police (city) Praveen Singh Chauhan said the victim's family met the senior superintendent of Police O P Singh following which a probe was ordered into the incident.

Dataganj circle officer Prem Kumar Thapa, who was asked to probe the case, submitted his report on Saturday, saying the allegations of the family were found to be true, Chauhan said.

An FIR under relevant sections for illegal confinement and torturing of the Indian Penal Code under the Prevention of Corruption Act has been registered against the accused, Chauhan added
