A disturbing incident has surfaced from northern India’s Uttar Pradesh, where a local bully was seen brutally assaulting a vegetable vendor.
The incident took place in the Pawaran police station area, Jaunpur on June 3.
Visuals showed the confrontation began when the vegetable vendor demanded payment from the bully, who had taken vegetables without paying. In response, the bully became violent, beating the vendor severely while onlookers recorded the altercation on their phones. The vendor tried to shield himself as the bully continues to hit him.
Police in the Pawaran area have acknowledged the incident and assured the public that they are investigating the matter. The identity of the assailant is being confirmed, and authorities have promised swift action to ensure such incidents do not recur.
