Chandigarh: A video clip showing a drunk unidentified policeman being thrashed by a group of four youths has gone viral on the social media.
The youths could be seen asking the constable where he was posted and whether he was drunk, in the video.
"Are you drunk? What is your name? Where are you posted?," asked a youth who has not been identified.
In the video shot by the youths, one of the assailants has caught the constable's collar and could be seen slapping him. They also accused the victim of taking away their bike.
Another fellow policeman was trying to stop the youths but was pushed away by them.
Meanwhile, Chandigarh SP (City) Parvinder Singh said the matter is being investigated.
"We have not received (formal) complaint in this regard so far. But we are investigating the matter," he said.
Notably, last year, a traffic policeman who had tried to stop a youth talking on his mobile while driving, had to fight for his life after the motorist sped away with the policeman on the bonnet of the vehicle.
