Bhopal: A video has gone viral on social media where a tribal woman can be seen thrashed with sticks, stripped and paraded by her family for allegedly eloping with a man from a different tribe. The brutal incident occurred in Madhya Pradesh's Alirajpur district on Sunday (September 1).
Till date, no official complaint has been received. The one-minute-42-seconds long video, shot on a mobile phone, shows male members of the woman's family punishing her.
The girl is flogged with sticks endlessly as she keeps on walking fast on the road in a bid to save herself from the men beating her. Meanwhile, the male members are seen trying to strip her and as she is paraded half-naked.
In the video, passersby are seen ignoring her ordeal and moving on without trying to help her. The woman tries in vain to avoid her tormentors, but men on bikes are seen overtaking her and trying to thrash her on the road.
According to sources, the police began an investigation in the matter and found that the victim is a 19-year-old Bhilala tribal woman and was punished by male members of her family as she tried eloping with a Bheel man.
