The incident took place on Sunday when Mukesh Vaniya and his wife Jaya were picking up waste materials littered outside a factory with the help of magnets when some workers, whose identities are yet to be ascertained, confronted them, accusing them of theft. They took him inside the factory, tied him up and began beating him.
The complaint was filed by the wife of the deceased, Jaya, said the report. It further said that the factory workers stopped beating up her husband only after she rushed to the spot with some of her relatives.
The woman escaped to get help from their village nearby. By the time she returned with some people, Vaniya was prone on the ground. However, as they rushed Vaniya to the Rajkot Civil Hospital, he succumbed to his injuries. The police have not given any confirmation on the theft charges against the deceased.
Police found that the video circulating on social media was shot by one of the accused. Officials also seized the recordings of CCTV cameras installed inside the factory for investigation.
