Aurangabad: A disturbing video capturing the brutal assault of a young man by five policemen in plain clothes has gone viral on social media. The incident took place in the Daudnagar police station area of Aurangabad district in Bihar.

The victim, identified as Sanjay Kumar, reportedly encountered the policemen while they were having tea at a local shop. According to witnesses, Kumar innocently requested one of the officers to move his feet so he could also enter the shop. This seemingly request turned into a violent confrontation as the policemen perceived it as an insult.

Eyewitnesses recounted that the policemen launched a vicious attack on Kumar, raining down kicks and punches without any provocation. The assault continued unabated until they dragged Kumar to the police station gate, where they subjected him to further verbal abuse before leaving him.

The entire incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed outside the shop, which later went viral on social media. The footage prompted swift action from the authorities, with Superintendent of Police Swapna Meshram ordering an immediate investigation into the matter.

“Taking cognizance of this viral video, SP Swapna Meshram has handed over the responsibility of investigation to Daudnagar SDPO. Whoever is found guilty will face strict action,” said a police official involved in the investigation.
