Jaipur: In a horrifying incident, three young Dalit children, between 13-15 years of age, were stripped, beaten up and paraded naked by a mob of upper caste men in Bassi area of Chittorgarh in Rajasthan.
The incident is said to have taken place on Saturday, April 2.
According to reports, the children were brutally thrashed for allegedly trying to steal a motorcycle belonging to an upper caste man in the area.
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. They were later paraded naked in the Chittorgarh area, which is at least 350 kilometres away from the state capital city.
No police action has been taken against the villagers who attacked and beat the boys. Shockingly, a police complaint was filed against the children for alleged theft after which all the three boys were taken to a juvenile home.
The children apparently belong to Kanjar tribe of Rajasthan, whose members, even today, are socially boycotted by other 'uppercaste' communities. Thus, people belonging to Kanjar tribe are forced to live outside villages and towns.
