The wife tries to protect her husband but fails to do so. The couple is eventually thrown out of the water by the mob.
Meanwhile, the police have started investigation after a purported video of the incident went viral. A police official said the exact date of the incident was not yet known, though some people claimed that it happened on Tuesday at Ram ki Pauri Ghat.
The official said that they have not received any complaint in this regard so far.
“However, we are probing the matter and trying to trace the couple and the miscreants who attacked them,” the officer said.
