New Delhi: A Nigerian national is tied to a post and thrashed by a mob in Delhi in a disturbing video that has emerged. The man had been accused of theft and drugs before he was assaulted by a crowd. The incident allegedly took place over two weeks ago in Malviya Nagar in south Delhi.
A case filed by a resident after the incident reportedly claimed that the Nigerian was involved in a theft and had been wounded after falling down the stairs. The video belies that claim. He is seen with his feet tied to a lamp post, begging for mercy as his attackers keep hitting him with sticks.
The Nigerian was arrested and has been in jail since the incident, which took place on September 24.
After the video surfaced, the police said action would be taken against the attackers.
