Amritsar, November 20
A youth was beaten up and made naked in Bala Chak village, which reportedly falls under Tarn Taran. The victim belongs Guruwali village in Amritsar. The incident came to light when a video of the incident went viral on a social media platform.
According to information, he had allegedly gone to meet his girlfriend. Area residents beat him black and blue and later removed all his cloths. He was forced to apologise and later sent him back naked on his bike. Though the victim and his family members did not inform the police, the Amritsar rural police took cognisance of the incident and started a probe. Later, it was found that the incident occurred at Bala Chak village in Tarn Taran, said Vikramjit Duggal, SSP Amritsar rural police.
A confusion regarding jurisdiction of the matter prevailed as the victim belonged to Guruwali village that fell in the rural belt. Further, the victim had not lodged any complaint. The Tarn Tarn police also remained in denial mode initially.
Gurcharan Singh, Tarn Taran (City) SHO said the incident occurred under the jurisdiction of the Amritsar rural belt. However, later he confirmed that a case had been registered in this regard and the police have arrested one person named Harpreet Singh. — TNS
