Jun 30, 2020 15:47 IST

Angry over being asked to wear a face-mask, a government officer brutally assaulted a disabled woman colleague in Andhra Pradesh. The horrific incident, caught on CCTV, shows the woman employee in AP Tourism Hotel Office being held by hair, then thrown to the floor and then attacked with an iron rod allegedly because she had pointed out that the officer, was not wearing a mask. The incident happened on Saturday but came to light on Tuesday after the victim lodged a police complaint. Deputy Manager Bhaskar, who pulled the woman staffer by hair, dragged her and repeatedly attacked her even as other employees in the office tried to intervene, has been taken in custody.
