Police said the incident took place on Saturday when Nandan was going with his colleague Ameena (24) to recover loan amounts from clients.

While going on a bike, two Muslim men allegedly waylaid the duo and objected to Nandan riding with a Muslim woman, police said. Then Nandan was forced to the nearby wooden sawmill, where another group of 10–15 other Muslim men assaulted him with sticks. The victim ran out of the spot and was admitted to McGann Hospital.

We are collecting CCTV footage to identify the accused.” The injured man has been undergoing treatment at McGann Hospital, police said.
