  • WATCH: Five Dalit Children Beaten, Paraded Naked In Punjab For ‘Uprooting Radishes’

The Punjab Police on Wednesday registered a case against a farmer in Amritsar district for allegedly stripping five children after they plucked some radishes from his fields.

 

The man's actions were allegedly intended as punishment for the children for "uprooting radishes" from his farm, police said.

 

The incident took place three days back in Sohian Kalan village in Amritsar when the children, who belong to poor families, were flying kites in the area. A criminal case has been registered against the man, senior police official Majitha Mohit Kumar said.

 

"Ashurbanpal Singh Latti accused them of uprooting radishes from his fields and in anger, thrashed and stripped them. He then paraded them naked on the road as punishment," Mr Kumar added.

 

 

A video of the incident was recorded by a bystander has gone viral on social media.

 

The victims, who were later found in their undergarments despite rainy and cold weather, narrated the incident to a person from the village who made a video of the same. The video went viral in the past two days.

 

The victims said that they had entered the field of the farmer while trying to catch a kite. Some of them pulled out the radishes following which the farmer got angry and caught hold of them.

 

 

Though there was tension in the village as the victims belonged to the Dalit community, their families lodged a police complaint only on Wednesday following which police investigated the matter and booked the farmer.
