SRINAGAR: A Kashmiri businessman was thrashed by a group of goons in Mumbai in the intervening night of Sunday and Monday. He laid on the road scarred and bruised, reported Clarion India.
According to report, Mohammad Adnan, 25, a businessman from Srinagar, was waylaid by three men on the street when he was returning to his apartment in the Mohammad Ali Road area of the city at around midnight. He had gone out to buy bread and Pulav for Sehri.
“While I was entering the building, one of the men grabbed me by my throat,” Clarion India quoted Adnan as having said. “They left the Zamato guy aside and started beating me. They tore apart my shirt.”
Adnan said that the men abused him and called him names using communal and regional slurs. “They addressed me with a refrain, ‘you Kashmiris are like this’.”
After the incident, Adnan called the police and his neighbour for help. A police party was on the spot taking stock of the situation, said the report.
He said he later came to know that the attackers share the same building where he lives.
Earlier this month Kashmiri Muslim labourers were attacked in Assam. Before that, in April a similar incident was reported from Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh.
