Sikh cop single-handedly saves a Muslim man from Hindu mob
UTTARAKHAND: A Sikh sub-inspector has become a social media hero after video of him saving a Muslim boy from an angry Hindu mob inside a temple in Ramnagar went viral.
According to reports, a group of Hindus became aggressive and lost their cool after they found the boy with a Hindu girl inside the temple.
The couple met in a crowded temple in Girija village, where they got surrounded by a group of men, who started blowing kicks and slaps on the boy.
Sub- Inspector Gagandeep witnessing the mob immediately intervened and confronted the group all by himself.
In the video, it can be seen that after the police officer refused to hand over the boy to the mob, the group started chanting anti-police slogans.
As per reports, when the girl asked a man why he had beaten up the boy, the man allegedly responded: “We will chop him to pieces. You are a Hindu and roaming around with a Muslim man. I will chop you too.”
