A video of the Inspector General of Traffic, Basant Rath, of the Jammu Kashmir Police, hitting a boy from the Srinagar region in the Lal Chowk region, became very virulent on social networks .
In this video of less than a minute, clicked at a distance, we can see Rath hitting young people, who they said were traffic offenders.
The IGP traffic responding to the video said the 40-second clip was part of a 25-minute conversation in that fateful afternoon.
The incident is more than two months old, Basant said.
He said that the guy who was slapped by a medical student from Delhi who was spending his holidays in Srinagar asked him questions of a political nature. "I responded with my heart, but I saw his friends recording my conversation station as I fell agitated;" Basant wrote. He said that this had happened when he realized that two of his friends were recording our conversation, adding that when he asked them to stop him, and delete the videos, they created a scene.
