At least seven people were arrested in Uttar Pradeshâ€™s Baghpat after they allegedly assaulted two Army personnel, one of them badly wounded, after an altercation while they were having lunch at a restaurant.
A video of the clash, posted by news agency ANI, which went viral shows a group of men beating up an army jawan (in green kurta) with sticks and rods, while another armyman (carrying a red bag) tries to stop the men from beating his colleague. The other jawan, however, was also beaten up.
