Telangana: BJP councillor among 11 booked for assaulting family in Medak

The Muslim man's sister reportedly suffered a miscarriage after she was assaulted in an attempt to save him.

Hyderabad: Police have booked 11 persons, including a BJP councillor, for allegedly assaulting a Muslim family while chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’ slogans in Narsapur of Medak district recently.

Even though the incident took place on May 7, and the case was filed on the same day, it came to light after a video of the incident went viral on Twitter on Thursday.

The video purportedly shows a group of saffron-clad men assaulting Md Imran, 31, his mother and sister, who later suffered a miscarriage. Police, however, refused to link the miscarriage with the assault case.

Following the incident, Imran was arrested for assaulting one of the accused earlier that day. He was later released on bail and a case was filed against those who attacked him and his family.

Netizens respond

As the video of the incident went viral on Thursday, it evoked strong reactions from many Twitter users. Many posts tagged state DGP Anjani Kumar and Medak police commissioner and SP, demanding action against the assaulters.
