In a shocking incident, a Nigerian man was tied to a pole and brutally thrashed with sticks on suspicion of theft in the national capital. The African national was brutally beaten up by neighbours who accused him of theft and drugs.

According to NDTV, the incident took place two weeks ago when the man was caught outside a local resident's house.

In the disturbing video which is said to be shot on September 24, the Nigerian national can be seen screaming and pleading for mercy but nobody came for his help. Five people were arrested for the attacks. Unhinged by the emotional appeal of the helpless man, mob continued slapping and hitting him with sticks while asking where he had hidden the money.

Boat carrying asylum seekers from Myanmar capsizes off Bangladesh
After waves of violence in the past five years, about 1 million Rohingya have been forced to move to Bangladesh. A senior Bangladeshi minister said yesterday that the government would allow more Rohingya to cross the border.

The man was allegedly caught while he was trying to rob a house.

While the Nigerian man was later arrested by the police, the unknown assailants who thrashed him are roaming free. By the time he was handed over to the police the same day, he was wounded and barely conscious.

A senior police officer said even though Ahmed had injuries, they were suspected to be because of the fall from the stairs but with the video surfacing now, they were probing the matter.
