Bengaluru: A techie, who tried to help a street vendor under attack, was chased and assaulted by a group of three rowdies in Jogupalya on Thursday. Making matters worse, the police, instead of helping the troubled techie, were allegedly making small talk with one of the detained accused.

The victim, Mayank Chauhan, 27, told Deccan Chronicle, “Around 7.30 pm on Thursday, I was talking over phone when I saw three men beating up the street vendor. I told the vendor to take his stuff and leave, and I walked off.”

 

But he was slapped and attacked by the three assailants, two of whom have been identified as Prakash and Antony. Mayank was chased into a shop and attacked. As he ran out, he called the police, who caught Antony.

At the Ulsoor police station, Mayank was made to sit for two hours, even as Antony threatened to cut him into pieces. “But the police kept chatting with him and smiling,” Mayank alleged.
