Hyderabad: A 49-second video clip showing a man being thrashed for moving along with a burkha-clad woman went viral on social media, pointing to the growing incidents of moral policing in the city.

The video was shot by a few youngsters who apparently cornered a burkha-clad woman along with the man, who appears to be of another religion. A couple of youth slap the man while the woman confronts the attackers even as she tries to save the man.

With the video being posted on several Facebook pages, it went viral with thousands of people sharing it. It is not clear where the video was shot, but a car which can be seen in the video bears a Telangana State registration number.
