Nigerian men cry as Indian soldiers and civilians brutalise them

A video shared online shows Nigerian men crying out in pain as they were brutally beaten by soldiers and civilians in India.

A Twitter user who shared the video said the brutality is suspected to be in relation to Nigerians staging a protest days ago after a Nigerian man was killed while being questioned by police (read here).

The Twitter user said his girlfriend lives in Vikaspuri, the area where Nigerians were rounded up and brutalised.

He added that a warning had been sent out over the weekend, asking all Nigerians in the area to flee.

Those who stayed back were forced out of their homes and were beaten by soldiers and civilians.

"What did we do now? We did not do anything," one of the Nigerian men is heard saying as they are beaten with batons.
