Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) was an organization floated by Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. However, 3 members of the organization have been arrested after being accused of rape and beating a police officer. The incident occurred in Bareilly and it all started with some petty fight over playing music on the loudspeaker. It is alleged that one of the persons named Avinash got the support of HYV workers and together they abused the other person named Deepak and the women of his family. However, Deepak soon joined forces with his brother and beat up Avinash and handed him to the police.
As the news spread, HYV workers came in large numbers and started protesting in front of the police station. HYV regional President Jitendra Sharma and city unit President Pankaj were also present during the protest. BJP city unit chief Umesh Katharia reached the spot and tried to diffuse the situation, but he was manhandled. The HYV activists also beat up the sub-inspector Mayank Arora. FIRs have been lodged against the culprits and further investigations are on.
