As per news report of NDTV, two videos of Manoj Paswan, the alleged victim, have been circulating on social media where he is seen lying on a hospital bed and narrating his ordeal. Mr Paswan says he was transporting chicken from a poultry farm when a man stopped him at the Singhu border protest site and demanded he gave him a chicken for free. He claims that he was beaten up with a weapon that looked like an axe for refusing to comply. "I told him I couldn't give him a chicken because I was answerable to the shopkeepers and farm owners. I'm a labourer and could lose my job if even one chicken goes missing," he says in one of the videos.
