June 30, 2020: A shocking video of a man beating a differently-abled woman has emerged from Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.

The man, who is reportedly an employee of a hotel under Andhra Pradesh Tourism Department, could be seen thrashing the woman colleague with an iron rod.

The man allegedly got angry after the woman staff asked the accused to wear a mask, amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. The incident took place on June 27.

Reportedly, a case has been registered against the man under relevant sections. The woman had filed a police complaint following the incident.

The accused is being sent for judicial remand, the Nellore Police confirmed. 

“We have arrested the accused, C Bhaskar, working as deputy manager at the AP Tourism Hotel and he has been sent in judicial remand. A case was booked against him under Section 354 (assaulting a woman intending to outrage her modesty), 355 (using force to dishonour a person) and 324 (causing injuries using a weapon),” Dargamitta sub-inspector of police K Venugopal said.

According to the police, Bhaskar had been nursing a grouse against the 43-year-old woman, who is a contractual employee with the department.

On Saturday, when he was talking to a senior accountant, Narasimha Rao, without wearing a mask, she suggested that he wear a mask because of the Covid-19 situation.

“Enraged at this, Bhaskar allegedly abused her, dragged her from her chair, caught hold of her hair and started beating her on her face and head with a stick pulled out from a wooden chair. He also insulted her in front of others,” the SI said, quoting the complaint.

The incident, which happened at AP Tourism Hotel at Dargamitta in Nellore came to light when a video footage obtained from the closed-circuit television cameras of the hotel went viral on social media.
