A group of dancers were shamed in Assam on June 7, when they were asked to perform the traditional Assamese dance, Bihu, naked for the guests present at a post-Eid celebration in Asolpara village of Kamrup District.
The manager of the dance troup, Arup D Rabha, filed a police complaint alleging that the cultural show organised as a part of Eid celebrations turned nasty for the dancers as they were also subject to stone pelting.

Arup, on Sunday, told MyNation, "We were shocked at their demands. They wanted our girls to dance without dress. We somehow escaped." On being asked what police action had been taken so far he said that two people were arrested but they were not told under what charges they had been booked.
