A 43-year-old man is slapped repeatedly and pushed against a wall by some men for selling biryani, in footage from Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida that has been widely shared on social media. The incident took place in Rabupura, which is just 66 km from the national capital.
The men keep abusing the biryani seller as they rain blows on him as bystanders watch in fear. Though the incident is reported to have taken place on Friday, the video of the incident came up only today.
The assailants were reportedly angry at the man for selling biryani despite their warnings. A case has been filed and search operation for the accused is underway, police said.
