Cops Caught On Camera Throwing Accident Victim’s Body Parts Into Canal

Three police officers have been caught on camera throwing the body of a road accident victim into a canal in India. 

In the viral video taken by a passer-by, the three uniformed police officers are seen carrying the bloodied victim to a bridge barrier in the Bihar State’s Muzaffarpur district, then they pushed the body over the edge into the waters below.

The video posted on Sunday, October 8, 2023, has gone viral on social media.


Rakesh Kumar, a Senior Superintendent of Police in Muzaffarpur district, has admitted that the officers committed a big mistake and have since been suspended.

However, he says that the accident victim was badly mangled after he was crushed by a speeding truck, and they only threw the lower half of the body.

“It was the body of an elderly man who is yet to be identified. The upper half was sent for post-mortem, but the lower half was badly mangled, so they threw it in the canal,” Rakesh says as reported by local media.
