Police deny allegation of parading man naked in west Delhi

New Delhi: After a video emerged of a man, not wearing any clothes, being taken into custody by the Delhi Police at Inderpuri in the western parts of the city, locals have alleged that he was paraded naked in the area. However, the police have denied the allegation.

According to the police, the man was wearing only a towel when they had gone to arrest him. “The police team had gone to his house. There was a non-bailable warrant against him. He was wanted in three armed robbery cases,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vijay Kumar said. Seeing the police personnel, the man jumped from the second floor of the building and his towel came off, the officer said, adding that he was immediately escorted to the police vehicle and given clothes to wear.

“After he jumped off the building, the police gave him an underwear, but he didn’t cooperate and instead, tried to set himself free,” Kumar said. The family members of the man were also involved in selling liquor and it was feared that they might create a scene, the police said.
