HÀ NỘI — Investigative police of Hà Nội’s Chương Mỹ District have begun criminal proceedings after an old war invalid was beaten after a traffic collision.
Earlier, a video went viral on social media showing the soldier being beaten by a group of young men at about 4pm on January 25.
The men were charged with “intentionally causing injuries to a war invalid”, according to the police.
Hoàng Tiến Vin, 62, a war veteran with his right leg amputated, reported that he did not notice his three-wheel vehicle hitting a car in Chúc Sơn Town in Chương Mỹ District. He did not notice the collision and drove on when a group of young men then chased him by motorbike and assaulted him.
Despite the intervention of witnesses, the men kept beating and kicking the solider and took him away by motorbike.
Vin suffered from a shoulder injury and was taken to Military Hospital 103 for treatment.
Lieutenant Colonel Trần Trí Dũng, head of Chương Mỹ District’s police said that they have summoned the suspects for further investigation. — VNS
