According to a NewsX report, the 15-year old boy went to play basketball at the Delhi Cantonment area and was waiting for a bus near the Dhaula Kuan Metro station when two policemen approached him and told him to leave the area. When the boy replied that he was just waiting for the bus, the two policemen started abusing him and allegedly beaten him up.
“My son was in his jersey and also carrying a basketball. But they didn’t spare him… he was beaten up and slapped several times… he started bleeding from his mouth,” the boy’s mother was quoted by NewsX as saying.
The boy was also taken into police custody. The boy was later released after his father’s intervention.
