Delhi Violence: Forced To Sing National Anthem Man In Video, Man Lying On Delhi Road Dies
New Delhi: The man seen in a viral video from Delhi has been identified as Faizan, in a video, it can be seen policemen making the young men sing the national anthem, has died of his injuries.
Among the 5 men, the one is identified as Faizan, a resident of Kardampuri in northeast Delhi, one of the areas hit by violence.
The video emerged during the four days of unprecedented violence over the citizenship law in a part of Delhi, verified by fact-checking website Altnews. The video shows five men, injured, lying on a road and singing the national anthem.
Some of them are being made to sing the national anthem. A group of policemen in riot gear can be seen standing around the men. Two of them are pointing their lathis on the faces of the men. "Acchi tarah gaa (sing well)," a male voice can be heard saying.
Delhi's Guru Teg Bahadur (GTB) has declared dead. His family alleges he and other men were seen in the video were taken into police custody and beaten.
He and the others were beaten up badly. He was beaten with iron rods. His legs were broken. His entire body had turned black because of the beatings. First, he was beaten up on the road. They (the police) must have taken him away. But I don't know about that," Faizan's mother told NDTV channel.
Faizan's mother said when she returned to the police station the next morning with two others, they were threatened with detention. "They called me up at 11 pm when he was almost dying," she said.
"He did not participate in the protest," another relative said.After Faizan was released by the police, the family took him to a local doctor.
"When he came to me, his mother was saying that the police had beaten him and that the police took him to the station and left him after two days," Dr. Khaliq Ahmed 'Sherwani', who runs a clinic in Kardampuri, told NDTV news channel.
Delhi Police had received about 13,200 distress calls during the four days when the northeastern part of the city was hit by the brutal violence, but call record of police stations in the affected areas raises serious doubts over the response to those calls. The police said over 500 people have been detained for the violence in northeast Delhi.
