In the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, activists of the Hindu extremist organization Bajrang Dal tortured a Muslim man who was traveling on a train with a married Hindu woman. According to reports, they forcibly took him off the train and stopped him at Ajin railway station for hours.

They handed him over to the railway police. Later, their families confirmed to the police that they are family friends and know each other, after which the police let them go.
