One of the victims fell on the ground, but the perpetrators continued to hit and kick him. Thereafter, they dragged the semi-unconscious men onto the bus. The victims did not cause any public disturbance nor damage to any property. Two more men in black uniform got off the bus after the beatings stopped.
