In yet another case of moral policing, a mob barged into a house in Muzaffarnagar and thrashed a youth after spotting him with a girl.
The couple was found in a room in Gandhi Colony by some locals of the area who "misbehaved" with the couple and physically assaulted the 26-year-old man injuring him seriously, police said.
They said a police team rushed to the area and took the couple in for questioning.
The incident comes a day after a couple was beaten and then paraded with faces blackened in Bachchan Singh Colony for allegedly indulging in an obscene act in a public place.
The couple was arrested on the charge of indulging in an obscene act and a case registered against those who paraded them, Superintendent of Police Devender Chaudhary said.
