A 24-year-old man from Assam working in a catering firm in Surat was beaten on Friday allegedly by three local youths who asked him to vacate a house suspecting that he was infected with Covid-19. The 24-year-old man, who has been out of work since the lockdown began, has been hospitalised and his condition is stable. Police have registered a case.

Udhna police inspector M V Patel said, “He was beaten up by local residents, who also made allegations that Govalaknagar in Pandesara where Sharma was staying had Covid-19 cases. We are trying to identify the accused and will arrest them.” Sharma’s friends have lodged a complaint against the three youths, Dipu, Nepali and Bunty, and the police are yet to identify them.
