A day after Mayawati resigned from Rajya Sabha for allegedly not being allowed to speak on Dalit issues in the upper house, a video surfaced up on the social media where a 14-year-old Dalit boy can be seen being stripped, abused and beaten up by a group of boys. The incident occurred at Pilkhana village near Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh

The victim along with his parents have accused that around eight boys tied his hand to a stick and and stripped him at a forested area near his house. 

The minor narrating his ordeal said, “I repeatedly requested them to let me go but they repeatedly thrashed me. They also attempted to rape me and prior letting me free they urinated on me.”
