    New Delhi (Sputnik): The northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has been under scrutiny for its law and order status since the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) under the federal Home Ministry revealed that the highest number of crimes, close to 60,000, was reported in the Bharatiya Janata Party-governed state in 2018.

    A bunch of men thrashed three women, dragging them out of a car and beating them up in the middle of the road in Kanpur in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh late on Monday night.

    Narrating the ordeal, the victims said they were heading back home and on the way their car brushed past a motorcycle.

    “We had apologised to the men after our car brushed their bike. However, the men stopped our car around 200 metres away from the place. They pulled us out from the car and started hitting us", the victims said.

    A horrifying video posted by a Twitter user shows the women being beaten by the men while some people tried to intervene.

    According to police, a case has been registered and search operation is underway to nab the men.
