Mayurbhanj:A viral video has surfaced which sends chills in the veins of the viewers. A couple is seen tortured and tonsured in full public glare, without any mercy by a mob. This moral policing is executed by not only the males, but even a woman is seen thrashing the victim girl in the video.
This appalling incident has taken place in Mandua village under Karanjia PS of Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district.
Notably, a girl was allegedly in love with a driver of the village. When they decided to meet in a house one day, some of the so-called vigilante kept a track, and pulled out the lovebirds to punish them.
They gheraoed the couple, cut the locks and even shaved the head of the couple. The young victim couple is seen sitting in a crouched position, and the mob is on their job relentlessly, tonsuring and hurling abuses to both.
Some of the people present in the mob even filmed the whole act and uploaded it on the social media, making the incident viral.
Though a complaint has been lodged in the Karanjia PS, no action is taken against any person involved in the act.
