JAIPUR: In a shocking atrocity, a young man was forced to drink urine and brutally beaten by a group of villagers in Sirohi district of Rajasthan for reportedly having an affair with a married woman. An FIR has been registered against 8 persons and the DG of Rajasthan Police has summoned a report from the district SP.
The youth, identified as Kaluram is a 24-year old resident of Bhev Paladi village in Sirohi district.

An FIR has been lodged in Sumerpur Police Station by the victim against 8 accused who were from his own village. According to the FIR, Kaluram had gone to leave his uncle from Bhev to Bharonda village in the afternoon of June 11. A group of men kidnapped him and forced to drink urine which they had kept in a liquor bottle. Kaluram has also alleged that the men not only thrashed him but also made a video of the shameful incident.
The police have registered an FIR against the culprits under IPC sections 143, 365, 384,342 and 323. Poora Ram Dahiya, sub-inspector, Paladee police station in Sirohi, said, "A team from Paladee and Sumerpur police stations are searching for the accused.
