A customer was caught on camera being drenched with boiling oil after he complained about the taste and price of a roadside restaurant’s food.
The incident unfolded when Vicky Mhaske, 17, had gone to Manoj Koliwada Chinese Corner, a famous food joint with his three friends in Ulhasnagar, near Mumbai, western India.
Vicky had ordered snacks but was not happy with the quality of the food.
He later complained the owner Surat Darshan Rai, arguing that he was charging too much for ‘the tasteless food’.
However after a row broke out between the pair, the teenager rang his brother Deepak – who was seen on camera confronting the owner.
Surat is then filmed allegedly throwing boiling water from a pan at the brothers.
Deepak was seriously injured in the incident.
GP Thakre, a police officer investigating the case, said: ‘The incident took place at a busy eatery- Manoj Koliwada Chinese Corner in the city’s Venus Chowk, which mostly remains crowded.
‘At around 1130 pm on Tuesday night, victim Vicky Mhaske along with three others went to the eatery to have dinner.
‘A brawl started between Vicky and the owner after he first complained about the food and then the bill.
‘Vicky immediately called up his brother Deepak Mhaske and asked him to reach the spot. In the incident, Deepak received burn injuries on his face, chest and shoulders.
‘However, Vicky has received minor injuries’.
The brothers and their friends were immediately rushed to a private hospital where they remain undergoing treatment.
Mr Thakre said: ‘We have arrested the eatery owner, Surat, and one of the workers at the eatery, Bola Prasad Rai.
‘We are investigating the case and action will be taken against those who were involved in it.’
