Investigation by Bandra Railway Police
The Bandra Railway Police are actively investigating the case in order to determine the identities of the individuals shown in the video. At present, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
According to police reports, the incident captured on video took place on July 21st. The footage, which has gained traction on social media platforms, displays a man attired in a red shirt being subjected to repeated slapping and assaults by the mob. This is despite the objections raised by a girl present at the scene.
The girl's fervent pleas of "Don't hit him" are tragically ignored, even as other individuals within the mob record videos of the incident. Additionally, voices can be heard informing the victim that the girl accompanying him is just 16 years old.
The video showcases a disturbing scene where a 16-year-old boy is being beaten by a mob while chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans.
