Lucknow: Two policemen, who were suspended after a video of them thrashing a biker in Uttar Pradesh’s Siddharth Nagar went viral, have been charged with trying to kill the man.

The incident took place on September 10, when the policemen – SI Virendra Mishra and head constable Mahendra Prasad – stopped the biker, Rinku for inspecting his vehicle papers. An argument ensued between Rinku and the police personnel which escalated into the cops manhandling Rinku with his niece witnessing the entire event.

A video of the entire sequence, taken by a bystander was circulated on social media prompting the suspension of the two policemen.

The police, however, said the man was drunk and was involved in a communal dispute in the area. He was not tested for drinking and driving.

A departmental probe has also been ordered against the two policemen after the video was shared widely online.

“It is being said that he was drunk. The two policemen beat him up badly, pushed him to the ground and behaved badly with him. Both of them were in uniform. It is disgraceful to the police department,” senior police officer Dr Dharm Veer Singh said.
