According to police, the incident took place on 26 March, when three boys called up the police control room complaining about a fight.

When a police team reached there, it was told that they were allegedly beaten up with sticks by three other youths,
aged between 18 and 21, at a park near a madrasa in the area.

The three boys were taken for medical check up, following which no injuries were found on the bodies of two and one had a fracture. An X-ray has confirmed the fracture.

The injured boy later told police that he was asked to chant "Jai Mata di" and his statement was recorded again.

After the police had recorded his second statement, they said they got to know from sources that the boy told others that he and his friends were asked to chant "Bharat Mata ki Jai".

However, the boy has not mentioned about having been asked to chant the slogan to the police yet, the official said.

A case has been registered under IPC sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous
hurt) and 341 (wrongful restraint) and investigation is on.
