Mumbai: Actor Abhinav Shukla’s cousin was beaten up and stripped naked in a brutal incident that took place in Punjab a month back. The Bigg Boss 14 contestant took to his social media to post a picture of his cousin and mentioned that the family has been struggling to get an FIR lodged while the victim has become paralysed.
Taking to his Twitter on Monday, Abhinav tagged the respective police handles and wrote, “My cousin was brutally beaten when he was unconscious, stripped naked, left to die. Somehow he survived. Spent 30 days in ICU. Now he is paralysed, so much happened but we all are begging the concerned PS to file an FIR. @PP_gurdaspur @DGPPunjabPolice @PunjabPoliceInd (sic).” His tweets received replies from Punjab police and IPS Surendra Lamba who asked him to register an FIR at the Pathankot police station.
