A Nigerian man has been caught on video being tied to a post and thrashed by a mob in Delhi,
reported NDTV.

The footage caught by the channel was made after the man was allegedly caught trying to rob a
house in Malviya Nagar in south Delhi, which has a large amount of African students. After the
brutal assault, he was arrested and jailed but the perpetrators of his torture remain at large.

He was allegedly caught in the early hours of September 24, inside the house of Krishna Kumar.
By the time he was handed over to the police the same day, he was wounded and barely conscious.
People in the neighbourhood allegedly told the police that he was hurt when he fell down the stairs
while trying to escape.

The video that NDTV found exposes the collective lie. In the mobile phone video, the Nigerian
national is seen with his feet tied to a lamp post, begging for mercy as his attackers keep hitting
him with sticks. Voices in the background can be heard egging on the mob and saying: “Get red
chilly. Beat him harder…”

One man holds his feet and aims hard on the sole with a stick. “Forgive me!” the Nigerian national
cries out, his hands folded, but it doesn’t move his attackers, who keep slapping him and demanding
to know whether he has any hidden money. In one clip, he is upright, tied to a lamp post and in
his underwear.

He was taken to the police in that state, with injuries to his head, face, limbs and back. The police
say after he was treated in a hospital, he was produced before a judge who sent him to jail. But no
one knew until the video emerged that he had been assaulted. The police say action will be taken
against the attackers based on the video.

Earlier this year, after attacks targeting Africans in Delhi and nearby, envoys described the attacks as
“xenophobic and racial“. In two attacks caught on camera in April, four Nigerians were assaulted by a
large group of people taking out a candlelight march at Greater Noida to protest against the death of
a schoolboy suspected to have had a drug overdose and a Nigerian student was beaten mercilessly
inside a mall by a mob.
