Bilaspur: Two youths were thrashed by a mob in Chhattisgarh's Bilaspur district for allegedly trying to steal pigs, police said Sunday. The video of the incident, which took place on Thursday, went viral on social media on Sunday.

Abhishek Mongre and Subham were caught by locals when they were allegedly trying to steal domestic pigs from a house in Sarkanda police station area on Thursday morning, said Bilaspur superintendent of police Prashant Agrawal.

In the video of the incident, a group of people is seen thrashing the duo, whose hands were tied with a piece of cloth and a wire, notwithstanding their pleas for forgiveness. Agrawal said when police had arrested Mongre and Shubham on charge of theft, no major injury was found on their bodies during medical examination.

The duo were then provided primary medical treatment and sent to jail. He said they have cases of theft against them and had gone to jail in past. An FIR was lodged on Sunday after Mongre's mother lodged a complaint demanding action against those who beat up her son, Agrawal said, adding that further investigation is underway.

He said the people seen in the video clip hitting the two were being identified.
