Three teens were stripped naked for allegedly attempting to steal a bicycle in Rajasthan.
For almost 30 minutes, the three youths, were seen shaking with fear, while receiving the continuous beatings from the public.
Reportedly, the bicycle, youth tried to steal, belonged to the man of upper caste and the three youths were dalits. That is found as even more big reason, to thrash the youths brutally, stripping them nude and tying to a tree.
The incident took place in Chittorgarh area of Rajasthan, 350 kms from the capital of Jaipur.
However, the three young boys were released with the help of police, which was summoned by witnesses.

A robbery case has been filed on the youths on Saturday and currently they are in a juvenile home.
The public thrashing the three young boys was shot as a video by unknown and was sent to state's Child Welfare Minister, Anita Bhadel.
Reacting to the issue, the minister said, “I have just seen your video. I am going to get in touch with Chittorgarh administration and find out why this happened, what were the reasons and then we will take action.”
Nobody has been arrested for assaulting the children, who are dalits. These three dalits belonged to Kanjar tribe, who generally live outside the villages and towns, because of socially unacceptable by other communities.
