A minor girl was repeatedly slapped by a man in Mumbai’s Nehru Nagar on Tuesday for reportedly objecting to him talking loudly to his friends. In the CCTV camera footage, the man, probably in his 20s, is 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 parents registered a complaint later in the evening, in which the girl alleged that the accused first threw stones at her and when she raised an alarm, he physically assaulted her.
Imran was arrested the same day, but was released on bail the next morning.
