In an India Today sting operation, two lawyers, Vikram Singh Chauhan and Yashpal Singh — who thrashed journalists and students at the Patiala House Courts complex on February 15 — admitted to beating up JNU students’ union President Kanhaiya Kumar for around three hours when he was in police custody.
They also said Kanhaiya wet his pants during the beating.
“We thrashed him for three hours and we also forced him to say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. He later raised the slogan with us and we allowed him go,” said Chauhan.
Singh also said they would beat him up again.
“I will get a petrol bomb no matter what case is filed against me. I will not leave him even if I am charged with murder… I want to go to the same jail and will thrash him in his cell… I will not give my bail bond. I will go to prison for one or two days,” Singh claimed.
Singh added, “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.”
