This incident took place near Noble Hospital Chowk in Hadapsar, where residents caught the child begging.

Recognizing the falsity of the burns, the residents urged the child to remove the scars. Hesitantly, the child removed the wax-burnt fake hand and finally, the truth behind the fabricated burn was revealed.

The video indicated the presence of an adult with the child, prompting the gathered residents to confront them.
