NEW DELHI – A Dalit man was brutally attacked and rendered naked to check his religious identity by a mob in Neemrani, Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh.
According to a report from ETV Bharat, the young man was beaten up on suspicion of theft. In a video that was recorded at the time of the assault, the mob can be seen brutally stripping the young man’s clothes to check his religious identity, even as he kept shouting he is a Hindu.
The young man was then tied and assaulted again.
Moreover, instead of acting against the accused, the Khaltanka police locked up the Dalit man in jail.
Superintendent of Police Dharamveer Singh ordered an inquiry against Khaltanka police outpost in-charge Rajendra Singh Baghel, seeking answers for not taking action on the accused and putting the victim in jail without investigation.
