Shimla: A video clip purportedly displaying a person being thrashed by a police constable and a few Border Roads Organisation (BRO) personnel in Rohtang’s Atal Tunnel has gone viral on social media, prompting the Himachal Pradesh Police to provoke a probe.
The incident passed off on Saturday, the police stated on Sunday.
Within the 1.8-minute-long video, the person is seen bent over together with his arms looped behind the legs to carry his ears. He’s kicked within the face and slapped by the personnel.
