Thrash abuser with shoes says UP panchayat | India News


MEERUT: A panchayat in Sardhana ordered a 60-year-old man to be beaten with shoes and expelled after being accused of sexually abusing a minor in his village. The police were informed only after the “verdict” was rendered.
On Monday, the parents of the 11-year-old girl from the village of Chandna were working in the fields. The man, Raj Kumar, her neighbor, sneaked in and, finding her alone, abused her. Someone ran into him and got caught. But soon, the controversy turned into one about identity: the two were of different castes and each community endorsed its own member. Police arrived and dispelled the tension of the day, a local source said. The accused has also been booked.
