This video was shot by a policeman and is of an incident that took place in Pilibhit district of Uttar Pradesh. It shows a girl beating a boy who used to continuously harrass her and pass abusive comments on students passing.
While the act of the boy is not correct and he deserves to be treated as per our law, what is also wrong is the way the woman is seen beating the man in the presence of a policeman.
We believe such incidents will only perpetuate the lawlessness that is already existing in UP. This is similar to the incidents of mob justice witnessed elsewhere. And mob justice is never correct.
An inquiry has been set up to identify the policeman who shot the video.
