LUCKNOW: The Lucknow Police have launched a probe after a video showing a group of assailants throwing a man from the terrace of a building reportedly due to a money dispute, went viral on social media.

When the man survived the fall, the accused people beat and kicked him.

The footage of the incident, which occurred in the city's Madeyganj area, was captured by a neighbour.

In the video, five assailants, three identified as Amit, Gautam and Ankur, can be seen picking up the man and throwing him from the terrace on the first floor of the building with the intention of killing him.
