Jalna/Aurangabad, May 27 (PTI) A video showing a group

of around five policemen thrashing a man, who later turned out

to be a local BJP functionary, at Jalna in Maharashtra went

viral on social media, prompting the police authorities to

order a probe into the incident.

Police said the incident had occurred last month, but

it went viral on social media platforms on Thursday.

Talking to PTI, Inspector general of Police K M

Mallikarjun Prasanna said the inquiry into the episode will be

carried out by an Additional Superintendent of Police-rank

official.

Jalna Superintendent of Police Vinayak Deshmukh said,

"The viral video shows the man, Shivraj Narialwale, being

beaten by police. The incident had taken place on April 9 in

Jalna and an inquiry has been ordered...Action will be taken

if needed."

According to police, the incident had occurred at

Deepak Hospital, after a group of youths beat up doctors and

went on a rampage in the ICU following the death of a patient.

The patient had suffered injuries in a road accident

and admitted to the hospital where he died. However, the

relatives of the deceased accused the doctors of negligence.

Some angry youths barged into the ICU, beat up some doctors,

and broke the glasses, police said.

On learning about it, a police team rushed to the

hospital. Seeing them, the youths fled from the spot, but the

police caught hold of Narialwale, who is a local BJP

functionary, and the police team lathi-charged him, they said.

When contacted, Prasannna said, "Additional SP of

Jalna has been asked to inquire into the incident and submit

the report at the earliest."

BJP leaders demanded action against the policemen who

were involved in beating Narialwale.

Former Maharashtra minister Babanrao Lonikar said,

"Narialwale was beaten up by Deupy Superintendent and PI-rank

officials without any reason. He was thrashed as if he is a

terrorist. Beating a worker of a national party dosent fit in

any law and the officers should be suspended immediately."

"If action is not taken against those involved, we

will raise the issue in the legislative assembly," he said.

In a video message, BJP''s state unit vice president

Chitra Wagh said, "If the youth has done any crime, there are

laws to deal with him. Police has beaten the youth inhumanly

and state home minister, DGP should act against the police

personnel concerned." PTI COR AW
