The incident took place yesterday when the woman complained to her husband about being "harassed" by the accused while on her way to office, the news agency Press Trust of India reported. The video shows the man -- tied to the pole, his shirt torn and nose bleeding -- being thrashed by different people.
He was beaten up after the woman's husband and his friends rushed to the spot. The police said this was not the first time that the man had allegedly stalked the woman and had been warned by her husband. He was taken to the police station but neither side filed a complaint. The police reportedly let him off after a warning.
