Bengaluru: A Hindu man on Thursday was thrashed in Karnataka’s Chikkaballapur by a group of Muslim men after he was spotted having snacks at a food outlet with a Muslim woman who was also attacked and threatened “for visiting the eatery with a Hindu man”, the police said.
Police said the man and the woman visited ‘Gopika Chaats’ in Chikkaballapur. The woman was clad in burka and hijab.
The accused noticed them and learnt that the man accompanying her was Hindu.
They then called the Hindu man and attacked him. The Muslim woman came to his rescue, and told the attackers that she knew him “very well”, and questioned their behaviour.
However, the Muslim men told her that “it was wrong on her part to visit the hotel with a Hindu man, and she should apologise for her mistake”.
The police have got the video of the incident, and launched a hunt to nab the accused persons.
