Bharuch: Five men asked my name and beat me up, says Mumbai youth
A 22-year-old man was allegedly beaten up by a group of five youths after they inquired about his name and found out his community in Bharuch on Saturday. Bharuch police registered complaint on Sunday and are looking for the accused.
According to the complaint filed by Faisal Khan, a resident of Indira Nagar in Andheri West, Mumbai, the incident took place Saturday evening when he left his work place, a company that manufactures tyres at Jolwa village in Dahej, Bharuch, to purchase something from a hardware shop. Faisal joined the company as supervisor on July 6.
He told The Indian Express, “I left on my bike and after crossing around 100 metres, I saw five youths in a verbal duel with another youth who was travelling on bike. I did not pay attention and tried to pass through the side when the men, speaking local language, caught hold of me and asked my name. When I said my name, they asked which company I was working for. I gave the company’s address when three of them started slapping me. When I asked what was my fault, they replied with fists. Somehow I managed to escape from the spot as my bike was on.…
