Noida, Jun 9 (PTI) A 22-year-old law student in Uttar Pradesh has alleged that he was assaulted by police in Greater Noida and falsely implicated in an extortion case in which he was jailed last year.

The second-year BA LLB student, who belongs to the Dalit community, also alleged he was forced to drink urine by policemen and that they thrashed him inside the Sector Beta 2 police station in Gautam Buddh Nagar district's Greater Noida area.

The claims are being investigated, police said. When approached for a response, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Greater Noida) Ashok Kumar, who is probing the matter, told PTI that it is "sub-judice and I cannot comment on it".
