According to the police, the disturbing incident unfolded at a bus stand during the night of August 12–13. The victim, a woman of middle age, had gone to purchase milk from a canteen for her five-month-old baby. An altercation occurred, leading to a brutal assault by three men who were present in the canteen, as reported by the authorities.
Local media sources suggested that the dispute arose when the woman inadvertently forgot to pay for the milk due to her haste. This seemingly minor misunderstanding escalated into a heated argument, ultimately resulting in the three accused individuals subjecting her to a savage and inhumane beating.
During the assault, the woman was forcibly dragged, beaten with sticks, and kicked in the face. Shockingly, her helpless five-month-old infant was lying nearby on the ground during this distressing incident. A senior police officer confirmed these details and mentioned that, following the video's circulation on social media, all three perpetrators were apprehended on Thursday.
The accused individuals have been identified as Praveen Raikwar (26), Vicky Yadav (20), and Rakesh Prajapathi (40). Gopalganj police arrested them, as stated by Additional Superintendent of Police Lokesh Sinha in a statement to the news agency PTI. According to local sources, the police paraded the accused individuals on the road while escorting them to court, where they were subsequently remanded to judicial custody.
Sagar Superintendent of Police Abhishek Tiwari noted that the victim appeared to be mentally disturbed and that an ongoing investigation into the incident was underway.
