Aam Aadmi Party today leaked a video that shows a Delhi cops beating up a man.

Stepping up its stand against Delhi police, AAP leaked this 12-day-old video that was uploaded on YouTube by Kapil Kumar.

Days after its dharna against the Delhi Police, AAP leaks this video online with a message that asked Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde whether action would be taken against these policemen.

The Delhi police has already suspended 3 police officials pending enquiry just hours after the video was released.

"Just after the video was uploaded, the police came into action and three cops were suspended," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

"Delhi Police is known to be brutal. Every now and then we hear stories about Delhi Police's brutality. Here is another such video. Not only does the video clearly show Delhi Police's inhuman behaviour, but also the urban legend of police extorting money is caught on camera," AAP said in its message.

The party said the footage was shot by a 'vigilante' near Delhi's Red Fort on January 12. It shows three uniformed men beating a man with a stick, pulling out his wallet and taking money from it.

Just some days ago, Arvind Kejriwal had hel a massive two day dharna at Rail Bhavan against Delhi Police officers who had refused to make arrests ordered by his ministers. The Chief Minister has blamed the force for rising crime in the capital and demanded that its control be transferred to the state government.
