New Delhi, Feb 23: Shocking details have emerged in a sting operation conducted by India Today which shows three lawyers, Vikram Singh Chauhan, Om Sharma and Yashpal Singh admitting to beating up JNU students' union President Kanhaiya Kumar when he was in police custody.
The lawyers, accused of beating up journalists and students in Patiala House Court admit that they beat up Kumar for three hours while he was in police custody. They also admit that Kumar wet his pants during the beating.
"We thrashed him for three hours and we also forced him to say 'Bharat Mata ki Jai'. He raised the slogan following which we allowed him to go," said Chauhan.
One of the lawyers can even be seen claiming that he would not sign a bail bond only to land in jail so that he could beat up Kanhaiya again inside the jail premises. He went on to say that they had full support of police during the scuffle at the court premises.
Singh said, "We thrashed all journalists and JNU professors. If you live in the country, you will have to talk about the country. Police was also supporting us fully and they told us they were in uniform, that's why they (too) were not thrashing him."
Chauhan also says that many attackers on that particular day were brought from outside with the intent of beating up anti-nationals.
