Angul: A finance company recovery agent was brutally thrashed by three miscreants as shocked onlookers remain rooted in their respective places. This incident occurred on October 4 at Gandhi Nagar area of Angul district.
At about 5 pm yesterday four miscreants in two motor-cycles followed the recovery agent. They stopped him mid-way and three of them got down to beat the man. The miscreants used cricket stumps to hit him while the fourth acted as a lookout. Now this whole incident was caught in a CCTV camera. Onlookers can be seen to be rooted to their spots and too shocked to help the survivor.
In the video we see the recovery agent trying to fight off his attackers, but in vain. To save his life, he runs into a nearby grocery store but is pulled out of the shop and then beaten again. Several items in the shop were damaged in the tussle.
By this time the crowd had grown and the offenders made an escape. It is important to note here that the miscreants had their faces covered and had also made their motorcycle number plates obscure.
Locals allege that Angul Police took too much time to reach the spot and hence the offenders escaped.
However, Angul Police have initiated a probe and are looking at all possible angles.
