This comes as a shocking incident when a family was tortured brutally. The goons assaulted three to four people belonging to a Muslim family at Bhondsi area in Gurugram. According to the latest information pouring in the police have arrested six of the attackers.

Samajwadi Party leader and former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav while taking a dig at PM Narendra Modi tweeted:
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he is following the path of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, after a video of a brutal physical assault surfaced showing 35 to 40 men mercilessly beating up four men in Haryana’s Gurugram.
In a tweet, Kejriwal said: “Hitler bhi satta ke liye yahi karta tha. Hitler ke gunde logo ko pitte the, unka khoon karte the aur police jinhe mara, unhi ke khilaaf case karti thi (Hitler also used to do this for power. Hitler’s goons used to beat up people, kill them, and police registered cases against those who were assaulted).”
“Modiji bhi satta ke liye yahi karwa rahein hai, Hitler ke raaste chal rahe hai. Par Modi samrthako ko dikhai nahi deta hai ki hamara bharat kidhar ja raha hai. (Modiji is also doing this for power; he is walking on the path of Hitler. But Modi supporters are not able to see where our country is going).”
In another tweet, Kejriwal asked in which Hindu religious book it is written to attack Muslims.
He said that these people are not Hindus but they are goons and their party is made up of hooligans. It is the duty of every Indian to save both the country and the Hindu religion, he said.
Gurugram Police have arrested six men and registered a case against them for an attempt to murder at the Bhondi police station.
The police are trying to identify the other attackers.
On Thursday (on the day of Holi) evening, the victims, who belong to the minority community, were playing cricket outside their residence in Bhup Singh Nagar.
