Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Monday asked the Delhi Police to take stern action against those involved in beating to death an e-rickshaw driver for stopping two persons from urinating in public. Speaking to media, Naidu broke down while expressing his concerns for victim’s family. “I was moved after reading the news, have spoken about news with the governor, I have given a personal help of Rs 50,000 to the vitim’s family,” Naidu said with braking voice.

“Sad that an e-rickshaw driver was beaten to death for stopping two people from urinating in public in Delhi. He was promoting Swachh Bharat,” Naidu tweeted. He said he has spoken with Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and has asked him to take “strongest action possible” against the culprits.

“I have given a personal help of Rs 50,000 to the vitim’s family,” Naidu said.

Ravinder, the 32-year-old e-rickshaw driver,  was beaten to death allegedly by a dozen men after he objected to 2 of them urinating outside the GTB Nagar Metro station.

As per some eye-witnesses, two boys were drinking alcohol and were urinating near the Metro station, which was opposed by the E-rickshaw driver. The boys later returned in the night to carry out the shocking act. “14-15 men came together and started beating the man. Nobody came to help him. The man was beaten to death as the boys filled towels with stones and brutally thrashed him. They even started beating me. Somehow I was able to run away from here to ask for help,” an eyewitness was quoted as saying news agency ANI.
