The owner of a petrol station and his staff were assaulted by a mob on September 18th after a motorcyclist refused to wear a face mask. The ugly incident took place a busy road at Manickpur in Vasai. According to reports, the staff requested a motorcyclist wear a face mask as he entered the station to refuel his vehicle.

The rider moved aside his two-wheeler but then returned with a group of 10 to 12 men. They went on a rampage inside the petrol pump, damaging the fuel dispensing machines and office furniture. The video shows a man picking up a chair and smashing the store windows, while others create a ruckus inside the station.

In the meantime, a team of police officers reached the spot and de-escalated the situation. The unidentified accused have been booked for rioting and assault.
