This shocking video shows a young couple in India being stripped naked and physically assaulted by 18 villagers after they married in secret. The humiliating incident happened in Shambhupura village in the Banswara District in south Rajasthan. They were targeted after they married without their family’s consent.
Kachru, 21, and Monica, 19, had been in a secret relationship for two years before they finally got married and fled to Gujarat. But when Monica’s parents found out they tracked down the young couple and forced them to return to the village. There, they were reported to the village head.
The 18 people arrested have had cases registered against them under sections 307 (Attempt to murder), and 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code. Officer Singh said Kachru sustained severe injuries in the attack and was taken to hospital for treatment.
Police have provided Monica with police protection and she is currently being kept in a safe house.
