Mumbai Cab driver Forced to Chant Jai Shri Ram

A 25-year-old cab driver from Mumbai allegedly physically assaulted by a group of three men named Mangesh Munde, 30, Anil Surywanshi, 22, and Jaydeep Munde, 26, who are resident of Diva. While driving on Agasan Road in Diva, his vehicle developed some glitch. Khan kept trying to start his vehicle and since it was dark, he had switched on the parking lights,” said an officer from Mumbra police station. He added, “Sometime later, three men riding on a scooter spotted Khan’s vehicle and started abusing him, though Khan was polite to them. The trio, however, dragged Khan out of his car and allegedly started assaulting him. Seeing Khan being beaten up, the passenger fled,” the officer said. Speaking to Mirror, Khan said, “I told them Allah ke vaste, Mujhe maat maaro, Mujhe chhod do (For God sake, do not hit me, let me go). They then forced me to chant Jai Shri Ram. They kept hitting me until I lost my consciousness. Later I found myself in the car, with my mobile phone stolen.”
