In what is seen as a clear case of misuse of man’s power and total disrespect for women, a video showing a man brutally thrashing a girl in Delhi has gone viral on social media. The man in the video has been identified as Rohit Tomar, who is said to be the son of a Delhi Police Sub-inspector, Ashok Singh Tomar. In the video, the man can be seen beating the woman and dragging her by her hair to the ground.
The video, which was apparently recorded by one of Rohit’s friends, was said to be recorded on September 2 around 3 pm inside a BPO located in Uttam Nagar area of Delhi. The BPO is said to be owned by the accused’s friend Ali Hasan.
In the 1 minute 44 second-long video clip, Rohit is seen slapping, kicking, verbally abusing the woman. He uses his elbows and knees to strike her, while the woman pleads with him to stop. You can watch the brutally-thrashing video below. Warning: The video is violent/graphic

According to reports, Delhi Police has arrested the accused after the victim said he raped her. It is said that the victim, in her latest statement, alleged that Rohit Tomar called her to his friend’s office and raped her there. The girl has allegedly claimed that when she spoke about filing a complaint, Rohit beat her up.
Following the disturbing video, Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh tweeted that he had talked to the Delhi Police Commissioner and has requested a stern action to be taken as soon as possible against the accused.
एक लड़की को एक युवक द्वारा बेरहमी से पीटे जाने का एक वीडियो मेरे संज्ञान में आया है। मैंने @DelhiPolice कमिश्नर से फ़ोन पर इस बारे में बात की है और इस पर उचित कारवाई करने के लिए कहा है।

However, according to another source, Rohit Tomar had sent the video 15 days ago to a woman, not the one who is in the video, who claimed to be his ex-girlfriend. In the same report, she has claimed that Rohit had threatened her that she would meet the same fate if she didn’t marry him. Meanwhile, it is reportedly said that Centre has assured tough action against the cop’s son.
