Jaipur: The Chittorgarh police have arrested five villagers in relation with the beating and stripping of 3 Dalit boys in the city today.
A case has been registered against the 5 arrested accused and also against unknown people involved in the assault.
In a rather disturbing video that went viral today, three Dalit boys aged between 13 and 15 years were stripped, cruelly beaten and were tied to a tree by villagers in Bassi area of Chittorgarh. They were later paraded naked by the villagers.
The boy, who belonged to boycotted 'Kanjar' tribe of Rajasthan, were accused of stealing a motorbike of an upper caste man of the same village.
The entire incident, that was captured in a camera, shows the three helpless boys completely naked, quivering in fear and pleading for help while they are being cruelly kicked and thrashed by villagers.
Earlier today, it was reported that the police did not take any action against the 'upper caste' culprits and instead took all the three Dalit boys to juvenile home for the alleged theft.
