NEW DELHI – A disturbing video which has gone viral shows an unidentified woman being brutally thrashed with a stick in broad daylight in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district. The video, which surfaced on Friday, was shot by bystanders who continued to capture the event in their mobile phone cameras instead of making any attempt to rescue the woman in question. The woman got the beating while several men were seen facilitating the thrashing by restricting her movement.

The video which has widely been shared on social media has led to an outrage by netizens and forced the authorities to launch an investigation into the incident, reports reaching here said on Saturday.

“A video on social media shows an unknown man beating a woman. As soon as the video went viral, my team took cognisance of the matter and launched a probe. We found out the area where the incident took place,” media reports quoted Dhar Superintendent of Police, Manoj Kumar Singh.

The incident has gained special traction as it took place in the constituency of the newly appointed Union Minister of State for Women and Child Development Savitri Thakur. However, the minister has not commented on the issue.

The main accused in the case has been identified and been taken into custody. A hunt is on for the other accused.

Incidents like this throw light on the need for stricter punishments for atrocities on women, several social media users commented.
