PTC News Desk: The recent emergence of a viral video has stirred controversy, depicting Nuh violence accused cow vigilante, Bittu Bajrangi, administering a beating to a man with a stick. The unsettling footage captures Bajrangi and his associates restraining the individual while subjecting him to physical assault.

Allegedly, the victim was accused of attempting to lure two young girls into his room with nefarious intentions, prompting Bajrangi's gang to intervene and administer what they deemed as a "lesson." Notably, a police officer is observed passively witnessing the altercation in the video. It's crucial to acknowledge that the authenticity of the video remains unverified by Hindustan Times.

The distressing incident unfolded outside Bajrangi's residence, where his cohorts subdued the man while he delivered the blows. Despite the severity of the situation depicted, no formal complaint regarding the incident has been reported.

This latest episode adds to the notoriety surrounding Bajrangi, who previously found himself embroiled in the communal unrest that plagued Haryana's Nuh district on June 31, 2023. Tragically, this unrest resulted in the loss of six lives, including two home guards and a mosque cleric. Bajrangi's involvement stemmed from his purported dissemination of incendiary content on social media, which authorities deemed as a catalyst for the violence. Consequently, Bajrangi was apprehended on August 15 in connection to these allegations, only to be released on bail a fortnight later.

Bajrangi, who proudly identifies as a self-appointed cow vigilante, has been at the helm of his vigilante faction for an estimated three to four years. Despite being recognised primarily as a fruit and vegetable trader at both the Ghazipur and Dabua markets in Faridabad, Bajrangi's notoriety extends far beyond his commercial endeavors.

Preceding the Nuh violence, Bajrangi faced accusations of delivering inflammatory speeches via social media platforms and publicly brandishing weapons. However, it's worth noting that the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), a prominent right-wing organisation, has explicitly disavowed any affiliation with Bajrangi or his vigilante outfit. In a formal statement, the VHP emphasised that Bajrangi, also known as Raj Kumar, purportedly associated with the Bajrang Dal, has no ties to their organisation. They further condemned the content disseminated by him, distancing themselves from his actions.

As the video continues to circulate online, sparking widespread condemnation and concern, it underscores the urgency of addressing the menace of vigilantism and ensuring that justice prevails impartially.
