The man, identified as 25-year-old Dinesh Prajapati, has been arrested by police following a complaint from the victim.
The video shows Mr. Jaiswal lying on the road as Dinesh repeatedly beats him with a stick. The cop then tries to quietly walk away, but Dinesh continues to attack him, with blows that even land on Mr. Jaiswal’s head.
The video also shows many people witnessing the attack, but no one is trying to help.
Dinesh was riding a motorcycle when he collided with Officer Jai Prakash Jaiswal’s motorcycle on Friday afternoon under the confines of Aerodrome Police Station, Deputy Police Commissioner Rajiv Singh Bhadauria said.
“Dinesh Prajapati grabbed the trooper’s baton and attacked him when he asked him to drive carefully,” the officer said, adding that he was drunk.
Constable Jaiswal suffered serious head injuries during the attack, the DCP added.
Based on the video of the incident, Prajapati was arrested under IPC section 307 (attempted murder) and other relevant provisions, he said.
The police are trying to find out if Dinesh has a criminal history.
