NEW DELHI – A Muslim student, who works as a delivery boy to continue his education, was brutally assaulted and abused by a mob on the Holi day in Nanded city of Maharashtra. 

The police swung into action only after a video footage of the attack on the victim, Amran Tamboli, surfaced on social media, reports reaching here said.

Clarion India’s attempts to reach local police officials to get details of the action taken by them were not successful. However, according to Twitter handle Hindutva Watch four persons have been arrested.

 The footage shows that Amran was standing by after delivering the ordered food items. All of a sudden, four persons came there and started attacking him. They first pushed him, then hit him with hands and sticks. While on their way back after the assault, they pelted stones and bricks at the victim. Later some people responded to Amran’s pleadings and rescued him from the clutches of the foursome.

“After receiving an order for food delivery, I picked up food from a local restaurant and reached Bajrang Nagar. I delivered the food and was checking other orders on my phone, when suddenly three to four youths reached the place and started abusing and assaulting me. They even pelted stones and bricks at me. One of them even picked up a wooden log and hit me,” Amran was quoted by Times of India as saying.

After the initial assault, one of the attackers came back and smeared colours on his beard and put a tilak on his forehead, he said.

Amran also told local media that the attackers were also saying that why did a Muslim boy enter their area. They shouted, “throw him out,” he said.

Amran was seriously injured and fell unconscious. His team leader reached there and took him to a hospital. When he gained consciousness, he went to the police station to file a complaint.

“I was told by the police official that I would be called back to investigate the matter. So far, I did not get a call from the police. Let’s see what the police do,” he said.

According to Amran, it was after the video was widely shared on social media that the police swung into action on Saturday and registered an FIR.

Amran said the incident has left him and his colleagues scared and worried about how they would carry out their duties.

Abhinash Kumar, Additional SP of Nanded, was quoted by Times of India as saying that they will investigate why there was a delay in filing an FIR.

“We have identified four suspects caught in the closed-circuit television camera and one of them has been arrested. Our teams are tracking down the other three. We will conduct an inquiry as to why there was a delay in response from the area police inspector,” said Kumar.
