A minor girl was molested and beaten up by a youth in Nehrunagar area of Kurla suburb here.

The incident took place on October 17. However, a video of the incident, captured by a CCTV camera, went viral on Saturday.

The CCTV footage showed passersby remaining mute spectators. The girl was seen repeatedly being hit by the man before she fell down. Then, some people reached out to help her. The girl has sustained fractures on her nose.

"I was going to my tuition classes when the incident took place. I was beaten up till I fainted," the victim told a TV channel.

According to the police, a group of youths who were seated inside a parked autorickshaw were arguing among themselves loudly. The victim asked them not to make noise.

One of the youths could not take the reprimand and beat her up. The youth had a metal object in his hand and this injured her nose badly. The suspect threatened the girl and fled.

The suspect, identified as Imran Shaikh, was arrested by the police. However, he is out on bail. The police have registered a case.

"This is a serious incident, we have asked the police to take strict action," said Vijaya Rahatkar, chairperson of the Maharashtra State Women's Commission.
