The mangoes belonged to a fruit vendor named Chhote, reported NDTV. After a fight broke out near a school in the area, a group of men allegedly came up to the vendor and asked him to move his cart. While he moved his cart, by standers took advantage of the situation by pouncing on the mangoes that were left behind.

There were 15 crates of mangoes worth Rs 30,000 and everything was reportedly taken. In the video, a traffic hold up can be seen taking place on the street as people park their vehicles in a rush to steal the fruits.

The fruit vendor has filed a complaint with the police, but no action has been taken yet, reported NDTV.

At a time when the COVID-19 lockdown has caused massive losses to businesses, putting especially small businessmen and vendors out of business, this cruel act not just violates the law but is inhuman.
