Time: Around 5 am

Place: Near MG Road Bangalore

Binny saw this gruesome incident near MG Road Bangalore in an early morning and shared the story on his wall. Here is what he wrote. “Hi All, This gentle man in the picture is named Ahmed who sells tea near MG road which falls under Ulsoor police limits. He serves hot tea, burger, vada-pav, rolls etc. some eatables earning few bucks for his family of 5 with 3 kids.

Today at around 5 am when Ahmed was about to start his day to sell tea and snacks to his customers when they are hungry or some even sleepy. A constable who works in Ulsoor police limits hit him so badly that Mr Ahmed’s hands and legs got bruises all over. He was beaten so badly that his phone screen got broken as seen in this picture.

Guys the reason I am posting this is because this is not fair, Ahmed is not stealing nor begging on streets. He is earning for his living and taking care of his family. He earns about 1000rs a day on top of that he has to bribe the other cops and give them free tea, snacks and in return get beaten black and blue is not fair. Where humanity where is the justice here.

I really felt bad seeing this person in tears saying he is the only bread earner for his family; and he has to go through this ordeal often. So friends please share this post as much as possible so that this message reaches to the right authority in Police Department so that appropriate action could be taken against the constable who beat him. Ahmed who serves his customers early in morning have a peaceful life, if he gets such treatment he will have to choose an alternative of begging or even illegal options going in wrong direction in life.

People who sell tea or food items by the road side are not taking wrong steps like begging stealing etc. This is not something they willingly chose; probably it’s their fate which is making them do this for their living. Let’s all join our hands and help these kinds of people come up in their lives because they are our fellow humans and they deserve to be respected for whatever they do for their living to lead a happy life.

So my request here to Ulsoor police is that please allow Mr. Ahmed to do his business so that he can look after his family. And let’s all join our hands together so that people like Mr Ahmed get justice.” Name of the police constable is omitted from the post as it cannot be confirmed on the basis of one post. However we believe if this information reached to the right authorities there will be some follow up actions against this practice of looting and beating of poor tea vendors.
