The National Human Rights Commission on Tuesday issued a notice to Bihar police, asking it for a report on the incident pertaining to the role of policemen in the brutal beating up of a chain-snatcher.
"Two policemen arrived at the spot where Saleem was being beaten up by the mob, but instead of rescuing him they tied his leg to a motorcycle and dragged him like animal on road," Rupesh Singh, a social activist, said.
"We have taken action against the two policemen without delay to warn others not to take law in their hands," he said.
