Youth uploads fight video on Insta, thrashed with sticks and iron rods


Gurgaon: An 18-year-old youth from Sakatpur village was allegedly attacked with iron rods and sticks on Friday after a dispute over an Instagram post. The youth, Mohit, had allegedly posted a video showing a fight between two boys in his village.
One of these youths had allegedly asked Mohit to delete the post, which led to an argument. On Friday morning, Mohit and his friends Gulfam and Tanwar were headed towards a hill for a walk. Mohit received a call from Sitesh, who had asked him to delete the post.
After a few minutes, Sitesh, Nikhil and 10-15 other youths reached near the hill on bikes and alleged-ly attacked Mohit with sticks and rods. His friends were overpowered.
Sitesh, police said, hit Mohit’s head with an iron rod while Nikhil attacked him with a sharp object in the hand. They fled the spot, but threatened to kill Mohit the next time. “Nikhil put a pistol on my head and threatened to kill me the next time,” Mohit said from his hospital bed.
Mohit was initially taken to the Civil Hospital, but his family shifted him to a private facility later. After the police were informed, a case was registered under sections 148 (rioting), 149 (rioting with weapon), 323 (causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and relevant provisions of the Arms Act.
Mohit’s father Mustafa, who runs a fabrication shop in Badshapur, said his son had received a WhatsApp video showing Sitesh and Nikhil fighting with each other. Mohit uploaded the video on Instagram. “But he also removed the post when some of his friends raised objections. Despite that, he was attacked by a few youths from the village,” he added.
Police spokesperson Subhash Boken said they were conducting searches to arrest the accused. “Police are trying to identify and track the accused,” he added.
