The man was trying to help a differently abled passenger to board a train.

Shared by Indian politician Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the video shows the man bringing a rickshaw onto a railway platform when policemen start assaulting him, unmindful of his ripe age.

"I demand strict action against the cops who kept their humanity aside and misused their position", Sirsa wrote in his tweet.

​As the video spread like a wildfire on social media, a section of furious netizens questioned the police’s harsh treatment of an elderly the rickshaw-puller.

However, another section of users supported the police officials, arguing that no matter what the case was, the man shouldn’t have brought his rickshaw onto the platform, which is against the law.
