Days after four people were brutally injected with petrol in their private parts in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad over allegations of phone theft, a 16-year-old boy, who was one of the victims, told the police about his horrifying ordeal, revealing how they begged their perpetrators for mercy, but their appeals fell on deaf ears.
Four men, including two teenagers, were beaten up and their private parts were injected with petrol in Ghaziabad near Delhi, allegedly on suspicion that they had stolen a mobile phone.
The brother of a local Samajwadi Party leader, identified as Rizwan, is among the two who have been arrested and charged with “unnatural offences” besides other crimes.
Last Friday, Rizwan, who runs a dairy, suspected four young men from his neighbourhood of stealing his mobile phone and called them to his shop.
Zaheer Baig, 17, Gulzar, 16, Fimo and Firoz, both 25, were subjected to hours of beating and torture, said senior police officer Rakesh Pandey.
They allegedly filled syringes with petrol from Rizwan’s bike and injected the four multiple times as they screamed and nearly fainted with pain. The two teenagers, Zaheer and Gulzar, are in a critical state, the police say. They both had major surgeries to help with their body functions until they heal completely.
The victims pleaded with folded hands, claiming innocence, but to no avail.
All of us were sobbing and pleading with folded hands, saying we did not know anything about the missing mobile. But they caught hold of us three and called out to one person to draw out the petrol from his bike – One of the victim.
“They brought syringes and filled them with petrol before drawing them into our private parts… we almost fainted with pain,” the boy said, recalling his terrifying ordeal.
“One by one, they penetrated the syringes into our private parts. We shouted for help but no one had mercy… they injected petrol repeatedly three-five times on each one of us… one of the syringes broke off, but they brought another one… this went on for nearly 30 minutes before an elder from their family arrived and rescued us,” he added.
Rizwan and Akil have been arrested and their friend is missing.
It breaks our heart after hearing such stories of how inhumanitarian and vicious people have become. Don’t forget to leave your remarks and views in the comments section below.
