Amidst the festivities of Ganesh Chaturthi, a shocking video has come to light, showing four young men assaulting a policeman in Thane and allegedly trying to drown him. A case against the four youth has been registered, and action will be taken as per the law, the Thane Police Twitter handle said. The video shows one of the four men hitting the policeman in a pond where Ganpati idols were being immersed. As the policeman fights back, the two emerge near the stairs next to the water body, where three more men join the assailant in hitting the policeman.
Some reports suggest that an attempt to murder case has been booked against the four men, but this could not be confirmed independently. The video brings to light the growing law and order problems that are plaguing the country.

Just last week, three men reportedly shot a police constable and wounded another in Pune. The policemen, who are now out of danger, had tried to stop the unidentified men for routine questioning. In yet another incident, a man was recently arrested in Gurgaon for attacking an assistant sub inspector (ASI) in an inebriated state.
