The incident was filmed by a witness in the village of Nakul Sukli in the district of Bhandara located in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, and later shared on social media.
In the footage, the disabled man, identified as Raut, is seen lying on the ground after being knocked off his bicycle.
Meanwhile, a wild boar is seen repeatedly attacking his lower legs as he tries to fight it off with a stick.
A dog appears and starts biting the boar while several nearby workers shout and throw logs at it.
However, the persistent boar continues to attack the man, occasionally walking away before returning to bite the vulnerable disabled man.
At the end of the clip, the workmen appear to spook the tiring boar and it leaves Raut before running off into the nearby woods.
According to local media, the victim was taken to hospital and is no longer said to be in any danger.
It is unclear whether the local authorities are taking any action following the boar attack.
