Agra : A shocking video is being shared on social media in which a Agra-based man can be seen pleading two policemen to not take away an oxygen cylinder he apparently arranged for his mother. While some of the reports claimed that a filled cylinder was being moving out, the police said that he was just pleading for new oxygen cylinder as the empty one was carried out by two men.

In the viral video, the man, dressed in PPE suit, wails and falls at the feet of policemen, his hands folded.

"Aapke charanon mein vinti karta hoon...Bhaiya meri ma ko bacha lo (I am at your feet, requesting you. Please save my mother)," the man weeps until he is dragged away by people who could be from his family.

According to a news report, the video has been shot outside the private Upadhyay Hospital in Agra.

Targeting CM Yogi Adityanath, Youth Congress tweeted the video with caption: "This is a really heart-breaking video. A man is begging in front of policeman not to take a Oxygen cylinder he has arranged for his mom in Agra, UP. This is a total inhumane act by the police. Is this how you should treat your fellow citizens Mr Yogi?"



Agra police has condemned the claims made while sharing the video. NDTV quoted Agra Police as saying, "This video is from outside Upadhyay Hospital. Two days ago, because of a shortage of oxygen in Agra, some people were arranging their own personal cylinder and giving them to hospitals for their relatives' treatment. In this video, an empty cylinder is being taken away by two men. The man is requesting the police to arrange cylinders for him too so his relative inside the hospital can be treated."
