Reportedly intoxicated, a youth climbed atop a police patrol car in Asif Nagar and later damaged vehicles, including the police car. A video has now gone viral on social media where the shirtless youngster can be seen sitting atop a moving police car.
Later a policeman could be seen thrashing that youngster once he gets down from the vehicle at a petrol bunk. Revanth Reddy, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president, tweeted the video and said that the dreadful influence of alcohol has not only led to more murders and rapes but also to miscreants attacking police vehicles. He asked civil society to look into the issue.
Many on social media are saying that the fear of the police has vanished in the state. Hooligans are taking police for granted; as can be seen in the video, a youngster intoxicated with Ganja is having a happy ride on top of a police vehicle.
The accused also damaged an auto apart from the police vehicle. He was taken into custody by the police. The police said that overpowering that intoxicated person was a challenge as he was wielding a weapon. The police added that a case had been registered, and he will be remanded.
