Horrifying visuals have surfaced, showing a Nigerian native being tied to a post and thrashed mercilessly by a mob in Delhi's Malviya Nagar.

The video that has gone viral on social media shows the man lying on the ground barefoot and being beaten ruthlessly with sticks by some unidentified locals.

Men can also be heard saying, " Get red chilly" and "Beat him harder".

The man is seen with feet tied to a post, begging for mercy as locals keep hitting him with sticks.

According to television reports, the man, who was accused of theft and drug smuggling, was tied to a post and assaulted by some men.

Krishna Kumar (54), a resident of Savitri Nagar, had claimed that the man broke into his house and tried to steal valuables from the almirah kept in his room, the police said. The police have said that according to the neighbours, he was hurt when he fell down the stairs trying to escape. By the time he was handed over to the police the same day, he was wounded and barely conscious. The police say after he was treated in a hospital, he was produced before a judge who sent him to jail.

After the video came to light the spokesperson said that they have taken cognizance of the video, verified it and then will take legal action on the same.
