Two days after members of a Muslim family in Gurgaon’s Dhamaspur village were allegedly beaten up by 20-25 men, one of the arrested accused, Mahesh Kumar, was produced in the court Saturday and sent to police remand for a day.

On the evening of Holi, the family and guests who had come to visit them were beaten with sticks and rods, over two dozen men, who barged into their home and attacked them. The incident took place after some of the accused allegedly approached the boys from the family, who were playing cricket outside, and demanded that they “go to Pakistan and play”.
