The incident had come to light when the victim posted a video on Twitter narrating the entire incident and drew the attention of the police to it.

“One Anish Chand Dwivedi of Pansrahi area under Sadar Kotwali police station limit having a land dispute with his neighbor Satish Yadav posted on the Twitter on Sunday night that he was going on a motorcycle when some people of Sakarpar area surrounded him and started beating him at gunpoint," Deoria Superintendent of Police Shishya Pal said.

In the video, the victim also said that one of the accused urinated in his mouth and broke his janeu (sacred thread), the SP said.

When they caught his collar, his janeu also broke," the SP said.

All the four accused have been arrested, Pal added.
