TVActor Aansh Arora Alleges Torture By Cops, Police Deny Claim

Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki actor Aansh Arora has filed a complaint in the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) alleging third degree torture by Ghaziabad police at the Indirapuram police station at the night of May 12, 2019.

The Ghaziabad police, however, refused the allegations stating that the actor was making up a case just to evade facing action for allegedly vandalising a store inside a mall in Vaishali.

The incident took place at a department store after Arora picked up some items and also ordered for a hotdog.

I gave Rs 2,000 to the store staff and my bill was about Rs 1,500. I had also ordered a hotdog. The staff told it would take 30-45 minutes to prepare it, so I asked them to cancel. However, they billed me for it.

They said how can we take money from you without giving you the food? I said that means you want me to wait here. I questioned why they were not canceling my order. And that is how the arguments started. We started abusing each other and I got angry and even banged my hand on the reception counter, breaking the glass the actor said.

Further, the actor added that on the night of May 12, I again went to the store. I wanted to apologise for my behaviour and wanted to pay for the damages. But some policemen were already present there. They took me away on a complaint by the store owner. I was beaten up in the PCR van and later confined in a lock up of the police station. After some time, I was taken to a room and mercilessly beaten up with a belt. I suffered injuries to my hands and legs. They did not allow me to speak to my family members either.

I was beaten the entire night and tortured. They showed me as arrested in the morning of May 13 and later produced me before a magistrate without getting my medical examination done, he added.

The Ghaziabad police arrested Arora under Section 151 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, and produced him before a magistrate where he was granted bail. Later, he was admitted to a hospital in Vaishali.

Subsequently, the actor posted a complaint to NHRC, the Prime Ministers office, UP chief minister and director general of police (UP).

However, Ghaziabad police denied all the charges.

The suspect had vandalised the property inside the store. The suspect was brought to the police station and was not subjected to any assault. He was booked under 151 of the CrPC and taken to a government hospital for medical examination, before being produced before an executive magistrate. He was granted bail and allowed to go home, said Shlok Kumar, superintendent of police (city).

As per a report by Times Now, the senior officials of the Ghaziabad police has handed over the case to Circle Officer (CO) Aparna Gautam to probe the allegations.

On the basis of the video footage showing the actor damaging the stores property and arguing with the staff, charges for the offences under Sections 427, 323, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, were made out against him.
