A man accused of theft was tied to a machine, suspended in mid-air and beaten mercilessly in the Ujjain of Madhya Pradesh. Although the incident happened a week ago, police learned of the incident on Thursday, after the video of the incident was widely shared online.
The video of the incident shows the victim begging and apologizing while being beaten with sticks. At one point, a person is seen trying to stop the attacker, but his call is not heard.
“Hit him on the leg,” a man is heard instructing the attacker who follows the instruction.
The incident is said to have taken place on November 4 in the village of Sijawata, which falls under the Ingoriya Police Station.
