A video of a man hounding an elderly man who appears to be a cardboard collector has been making the rounds in social media. In the video, the person shooting the footage can be heard claiming that the wheelchair user is a liar and a scammer.

The elderly man tries to get away from the Chinese man shooting the video and appears to attempt to conceal his face. He even appears to throw what looks like a plastic bottle in the direction of the man filming him.

In the ensuing confrontation, the elderly man loses his grip on some empty cans and bottles he is holding onto and pushes the wheelchair he is using and the trolley full of cardboard pieces he is pushing around onto the road.

When a few Indian bystanders appear and try to help the man, the Chinese man shooting the video repeats that the elderly man is a scammer and tries to say “Poikaaran nambadheenga” – meaning “he’s a liar, don’t believe him.”

The bystanders do not seem to understand the Chinese man or care to listen to him and attempt to help the wheelchair user:

Netizens responding to the video online have predominantly excoriated the man shooting the video, saying that even if the wheelchair user is a scammer, he shouldn’t have been treated like that:
