Man, woman beaten up in Mumbai police station

      A young man and woman were beaten up inside a police station in Mumbai on Monday. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media. The police said they were found drunk and fighting on the road and that when they were taken into the police station they began hugging.

The woman in the video is heard screaming for mercy as the police beat up the man. The incident that took place on Monday night at the Andheri police station set of widespread anger.

"Let me go," the woman pleads repeatedly, while she was being thrashed. Both are colleagues at a call centre. The police charge that they were found drunk and fighting on the road.

"We saw that they were drunk and hugging each other and that too outside the police station. We felt that it would turn into a case of outrage of modesty and we tried to separate the couple. Police did not beat them up and they haven't filed a complaint," said Dilip Rupwate, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mumbai Police.

A cop at the police station said that the video was recorded to damage the reputation of the police.

The two were detained in the police station in the night and were allowed to go in the morning with their parents. The Government has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

It is widely alleged that the Mumbai police has been indulging in excesses. Last month two Muslim teenagers were assaulted in Bandra in west Mumbai by policemen who accused them of being Pakistan terrorists. Recently a woman was beaten for trying to use a gate meant for VIPs to enter a Ganesh festival venue.
