In Rampur, cops harass, beat Muslim voters to stop from going to poll booths ( Maktoob Media )

Rampur by polls in Uttar Pradesh took a hostile turn on the polling day, as it is alleged, that the police administration is causing mayhem, beating up and harassing Muslim voters to stop them from casting their votes.

A video from Rampur has also gone viral wherein a Muslim woman is shouting about how the police are mercilessly beating up Muslims coming out of their houses and warning the rest not to step out.

Maktoob contacted the Samajwadi candidate of MLA elections, Asim Raja, who said, “The situation is extreme. Police have captured the booths, and they’re not letting Muslims cast their votes.”
