New Delhi: Mumbai police on Saturday arrested two persons after a video of them assaulting two minor boys went viral. An eyewitness captured the incident on the cellphone camera.

The men claimed that the children stole money from the donation box at a pandal during Navratri festival.

In the video, the two – Mukesh Yadav and Pradeep Singh are seen thrashing the boys with leather belts for more than an hour in full public view. The boys sustained injuries on their backs, heads and eyes.

Parents of the children later lodged a complaint at the local police station. A non-cognisable offence was registered against the culprits.

The police have claimed that a feud between the accused and the children’s parents led to the incident.
