Lucknow: A youth from Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur district was brutally thrashed by a group of men at a railway station platform after he admitted that he was in a “relationship” with a Hindu girl.

The incident, which took last week, came to light after a video showing 21-year-old Rizwan being beaten up went viral on social media on Friday, a Times of India report stated.

The video shows Rizwan sitting on a bench at Kanpur district's Barrajpur railway platform and being asked to narrate details of his relationship with a Hindu woman. The youth had gone to drop the woman at the railway station.

In the video, the men can be heard repeatedly hurling abuses at Rizwan in Hindi, asking him to identify the woman’s name and his own.

He is also threatened to make admissions of intercourse with the girl on camera as the men film him while warning him that such incidents would be shared with Bajrang Dal and “exposed” in media. The man is heard making pleas to leave him alone.

Rizwan, also known as Samir, runs a salon in Rahmatnagar of Chaubepur village in Kanpur. While he has claimed that the men have affiliations to a Hindu outfit, police say the details were being ascertained.

According to the report, UP government confirmed that a case has been registered by government railway police (GRP) against four assailants, of which two have been identified as Mohan and Bhole Dubey.

“The matter was brought to our notice and probe has already begun. We will arrest all accused,” UP Police spokesperson Rahul Srivastava told TOI.

This comes days after a Sikh policeman in Uttarakhand came to the rescue of a Muslim man after he was allegedly found in a compromising position with a Hindu woman outside a temple.
