In a blatant attack on a teen girl student on busy Mumbai road, the attacker continues to hit her till the time she falls down unconscious. The whole act, fortunately, has been caught in the CCTV footage. According to media reports, the 16-year-old girl is seen as being repeatedly slapped by a man in Mumbai’s Nehru Nagar on Tuesday. The man was reportedly angry for raising objections on him talking so loudly to his friends. The CCTV footage has gone viral and caused outrage amongst the people of the nation. The accused man who might be in his twenties can clearly be seen hitting the girl so hard that she faints.
According to the police, the girl was on her way to her stitching class with her friend when she noticed that Imran Shahid Shaikh, who is her neighbour and stays in the same building, was talking loudly to his friends. She asked him to speak softly but the young man got agitated and slapped her.
As the man hit her, the CCTV footage shows, onlookers didn’t do anything to help her. Her friend informed her parents who rushed her to a local hospital. She was later shifted to Rajawadi Hospital in Ghatkopar. The security guard of the building, who is an eyewitness, said he was too scared and stunned to react.
The parents registered a complaint later in the evening, in which the girl alleged that the accused first teased her and when she raised an alarm, he physically assaulted her.
The accused was arrested the same day, but was released on bail the next morning. The victim’s family alleges that the accused sent men to their home to threaten them to withdraw the case.
