“They wear the clothes of sadhus but they will eat biryani with this money,” one of the harassers is heard saying.

Another man is carrying a large stick as he demands identification from beggars. Unable to show any cars, he calls them “jihadis” and “terrorists”.

“Just show us your Aadhaar, or we will thrash the stuffing out of you… All of you are terrorists… Carry your Aadhaar at all times,” he says, according to NDTV.

The news channel reported that one of the men who harassed the beggars has been arrested.
