Two Dalit brothers, accused of theft, were thrashed by staff at a petrol station in Rajasthan on Sunday, police said.
A disturbing video has emerged that shows several men beating up one of them at the petrol station at a village in Nagaur city, about 230 km from Jaipur. He had gone to the petrol station with his cousin.
In the clip, some men are seen stripping him, violating him with a screw driver.
Both the brothers are in their early twenties. A first information report was filed on Wednesday after they approached the cops.
“Two men are accused of theft on Sunday after which they were brutally thrashed by the employees. A video was shot, which went viral. They filed a police complaint on Wednesday,” senior police officer Rajpal Singh said.
Five men have been reportedly detained. Further probe is on, police said.
