A video from December 26, 2016 that has surfaced from the IT hub, Bengaluru, shows a 23-year-old youth from Mizoram being slapped and assaulted by his neighbours allegedly over some parking issue. The video of the incident that was captured at the Akkayamma layout in Bengaluru was released to the Bengaluru police by an Association of the Northeast community. The members of the community have called the incident a racial attack. The incident was reported to the police after the victim called the NE helpline and narrated the whole incident.
Details of the attack on Mizoram youth
As per reports, the victim Jerry (24) is a professional hairdresser in a spa and hails from Mizoram. The victim had an ugly spat with his neighbours over the parking of his vehicle at the parking lot. The neighbours who have been identified as Clifford Wilson (80), his son Carlton Wilson (56) and daughter-in-law Lynn Wilson (54) attacked the youth with an iron rod and even threatened him with dire consequences if he failed to follow their instructions.
The Banaswadi police have, however, arrested all of them after the NE Association presented a video to the police that was captured on one of Jerry’s neighbour’s cellphone.
