We also found a news report of Times of India in which the same video can be seen. According to the report "one of the victims Vinod Mukati told reporters that he was accompanied by 6 others who went to Borlai village to collect money paid to some laborers. 5 laborers had promised to work in the fields and had taken the advance of rupees 50,000 each. But when we reached their houses to collect the money they attacked us. Then the crowd gathered, calling us child lifters"
