Around six to seven men barged into the room of a lodge in Haveri, Karnataka and thrashed an interfaith couple.
This comes just days after two cousins were beaten up in the state after a mob suspected that they are interfaith couple.
Videos of the latest assault, filmed by the attackers themselves, have emerged on social media.
The videos show the six men waiting outside the room of the lodge in Hanagal Taluk of Haveri District.
After recording the room number, they knock on the door and wait.
When the door is opened by a man, they barge in and head straight to the woman, who tries to cover her face with a burqa.
Hurling expletives, the men hit the woman so hard that she falls to the floor.
The man is also assaulted and then caught by two or three of the attackers when he tries to run out of the room.
One of the attackers corners the woman near the bed while another hits her and drags her to the floor again.
In another video, which appears to be shot outside the lodge after the attack, the woman was seen desperately attempting to cover her face but the men lift her hijab and film her.
A complaint was lodged by the couple at the Hangal police station and two out of the six men, who are from the minority community, have reportedly been arrested.
According to the police, the attack took place on 7 January at Nalhara Cross in Hanagal.
"The six accused, who are from the minority community, have been charged with attempt to murder, kidnapping and outraging the modesty of a woman. Two of the six have been arrested and we are trying to locate the other four," a police officer said, NDTV reported.
Earlier, in an other incident on Tuesday, seven men were arrested for beating up two cousins in Belagavi after mistaking them for an interfaith couple.
According to the Police, the men, who were also from the minority community, continued to beat up the boy and the girl even after they said they were cousins.
