Delhi Cop’s Son Arrested For Thrashing Girl In Viral Video

Another complaint was received from a woman alleging that her male friend, Tomar, showed the video to her - in which he was seen assaulting the woman - and threatened her that she will meet the same consequences if she did not listen to him, said a senior police officer.

The woman in the video was identified when another young woman, claiming to be Tomar's former fiancée, complained to the police she had also been molested by the man and when she had threatened to file a complaint against him, he intimidated her by showing her the video of the first victim. Further action is being taken to arrest him, a tweet by DCP West Delhi said.

The police registered a case under preventive sections of the Criminal Procedure Code and arrested him. His ex-girlfriend had reportedly approached the police for Tomar's past violent behaviour but the Delhi Police had allegedly refused to act. The blows keep coming, on the woman's stomach, back and head, and he also pulls her hair. Police said that the video was shot on 2 September in Uttam Nagar and that they are on the lookout for the accused who is believed to be the son of a Delhi Police sub-inspector.

The home minister's order came after the video went viral since on social media.

Forecasters have warned that storm Florence could still bring catastrophic flooding, describing it as a "one thousand year event". This is the freaky moment a TV weatherman appeared to be caught faking his battle against gale-force winds during Storm Florence.


The man was arrested after Rajnath Singh intervened, calling out Delhi Police Commissioner to initiate investigations. According to media reports, police in West Delhi have registered an FIR against Rohit Singh Tomar after a woman filed a complaint on watching the video.

"I have taken note of a video where a youth has been seen severely beating a woman".

The person who recorded the video was Ali, a friend and classmate of Rohit's, who works at this call centre.

The home minister today expressed his concern on Twitter and said he has spoken with the Delhi Police Commissioner over the matter.
