Two men from Pakistan crossed the border, hidding in the container of a truck. They were caught at a police control post near Lipovac. There were two Croatian police officers in uniforms, who removed them from the truck, then three more officers arrived. They beat the interviewee, and punched him in the mouth, causing a broken lip, kicked him in the stomach and shouted at him “Go back to Serbia”. His friend was not beaten up.
