AS officer Ranbir Sharma misbehaved with the boy

He then slapped the boy and instructed the police personnel posted at the site to hit him with sticks. Sharma was heard instructing, “maaro ise (hit him)”. Later, it was revealed that the IAS officer had thrashed another 13-year-old boy for being outside his residence during the lockdown.
