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. Police have registered a complaint on Sunday and are looking for the accused. Fasial said, “I left on my bike and after crossing around 100 meters, I saw five people in a verbal duel with another man 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. I hid myself at a distance and informed a colleague, about the incident.” According to Faisal, after three of the five youths went away from the spot, he thought of returning to the company for safety. However, the other two men who were present on the spot, again stopped Faisal and beating him up and kicked him. “I took out my belt in defense but they caught hold of it and beat me with it. I left my bike and ran to the company gate. They chased me and beat me up again. The company security guards, instead of helping me, escaped from the spot. Meanwhile, the other three men joined them and forced me into an auto rickshaw, took me to a lonely place nearby and again beat me up. They left me there when they were tired.” Faisal called up his colleagues who took him to Patel Welfare Hospital in Bharuch by night. The hospital authorities informed police about the incident.
