A video went viral on social media that shows a man in northeast Delhi's Khajuri Khas locality getting thrashed by the accused, Ajay Goswami. He pins him down to the ground and tells him -"Zor se bol, Hindustan Zindabad, Pakistan Murdabad." Voices of other men are also audible as they curse the man who got beaten up to chant: "Asaduddin Owaisi Murdabad". Mr. Owaisi is a Lok Sabha MP and president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen.
Police reported that the accused got arrested and an FIR filed. There were also updates of his name in the Delhi riots case last year.
Sanjay Kumar Sain, Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast) mentioned in his tweet: "A video of Khajoori Kha's incident is in circulation on social media. Cognizance of the incident has been taken and a criminal case has been registered. The accused has been arrested and an investigation of the case is in progress. @CPDelhi @cp_delhi (sic)."
