A shocking video of a man mercilessly thrashing a Dalit minor girl in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi has gone viral. The brutality against the minor has sparked outrage in the area, and prompted police to register a case in the matter.

The video shows two men holding the teenage girl to the floor while a third rains blows on the soles of her feet with a stick. The girl was reportedly accused of theft.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi shared the video on her Twitter account and slammed the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led government in the poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

“There are on an average 34 incidents of atrocities against Dalits in UP every day, and 135 against women. Yet your administration is sleeping,” Priyanka Gandhi wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, in a statement shared on Twitter by the official handle of Amethi Police, Circle Officer Arpit Kapoor has said that they have registered a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.


Reportedly, two men have been arrested in Amethi for allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old Dalit girl.
