Hawzah News Agency - Reportedly dates back to early October and shows a Saharanpur DSP, who has since retired, torturing the Muslim woman. In the video, DSP Ashok Dixit, can be heard hurling abuses at the woman while he beats her with a stick.
Tere gande rishte hain? (do you have a physical relationship with the woman)?"
The DSP then starts beating the woman even as he accuses the couple of lying to him about their relationship.
"Ye mujhse keh rahi ma*****d, ki unhone kya bataya ki main kya hoon" (She is asking me that what the man (accompanying the woman) has told me (Dixit) about how she is related to him), Dixit says as he continues abusing and thrashing the couple.
According to the report, the policeman in question retired on 30 October and an enquiry has been initiated in the matter pertaining to the incident.
