MUMBAI: One person has been arrested and a hunt was on for another in a case where a man was assaulted with iron rods and made to eat garbage from a bin in Jogeshwari in Mumbai, a video of which had left netizens fuming on social media.
The incident had taken place last month and a Crime Branch Unit X team nabbed one of the accused, Abdul Khalid Malik Shaikh (47), from near a railway station, an official said.
