In a shameful and inhumane incident, a Dalit man was tortured for eloping with a woman he loves. He was forced to lick the spit and drink urine by the village Panchayat. The incident was reported in the Wazirabad area of Bihar’s Gaya district.
A video of the incident surfaced on the internet in which the man can be seen kneeling down. Everyone around him spat on the floor and then forced him to lick it. He was punished for his love affair. It was also reported that a Dalit man was also forced to drink the urine.
He was subjected to the inhumane assault after he owned to his love affair. They had eloped recently and when the woman’s family caught hold of the duo, the man was produced before the Panchayat. He was tortured in front of the Panchayat and Sarpanch.
After the video went viral, Gaya SSP Aditya Kumar took cognizance of the matter and lodged an FIR. Six people have been arrested and SSP assured that strict action will be taken against those who were involved.
