Nalanda, June 12: More than a month after the Jehanabad molestation case, another video of a group of men allegedly misbehaving with a couple and assaulting the girl has gone viral on social media.
The incident took place in Bihar’s Nalanda district. In the video, the miscreants could be seen assaulting the girl and trying to rip her clothes while filming the incident. The victim could be seen pleading with the men to let her go.
A case has been registered and the police are looking for the accused.
The Nalanda assault case comes more than a month after a minor girl was molested by eight unidentified youth in broad daylight in Bihar’s Jehanabad and the video of the crime was uploaded by the victim’s perpetrators on the social media.
The horrific video shows youth molesting, stripping and dragging the victim. The cries of the victim to let her go went unheard and the accused kept on trying to strip the girl off her clothes.
A case was later lodged under Section 376 (rape), Section 511 (punishment for offences punishable with life or other imprisonments) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 8 (sexual assault) of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), 2012 by the Jehanabad police.
Soon after the incident, the police took swift action and detained four people from Siwan’s Bharthua village in the district.
