A tempo driver in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh was brutally assaulted by a group of goons in broad daylight on October 11, 2020 while passers-by on the road simply watched the whole incident. Videos of the horrific assault became viral on social media along with a video that gave the account of the victim, Ajit Vishwakarma from Sehore district.

According to Vishwakarma, the incident happened when he turned at a bridge while returning home on Sunday. He claimed a woman riding a scooty that was allegedly speeding, crashed into him at the bridge. The angered woman called people on her phone after which Abhishek, Chandan and two other youths came to the spot in cars and on motorcycles. The goons brutally kicked the driver, verbally abused him and dragged him by the hair. Following is a graphic video of the whole incident.

DISCLAIMER: Some viewers might find the video disturbing on account of extreme violence. Video is not suitable for minors. Viewer discretion is advised. 

A crowd gathered but silently watched the abuse until two of the attackers picked up the unconscious driver and drove him away to the police station. The city police registered a case against the attackers on October 12. As per a tweet by state Home Minister Narottam Mishra on October 13, two of the accused have already been arrested.

 

 

In the video, Mishra said that “Law is the rule in Madhya Pradesh and Taliban culture will not prevail here.”

Nonetheless, the incident has raised concern among the general public who were appalled to see the unprompted act of violence in the city. Renowned journalist and human rights activist Teesta Setalvad and others condemned the public display of mob lynching.

 

 

According to the National Crime Records Bureau’s (NCRB) 2019 report, as many as 5,45,061 cases of hurt were registered out of 10,50,945 cases of offences affecting the human body that accounted for 32.6 percent of total IPC crimes in the year.
