A 56-year-old Muslim man from Bisauli in Uttar Pradesh was dragged out of his house, smeared with black paint, hoisted on a donkey and paraded through the public roads by a group of Hindu men after accusing him allegedly harassing a woman.

The group also shot videos and posted them on social media.

Videos showed the man riding a donkey, his face blackened and his hands tied.

However, Budaun SSP Sankalp Sharma clarified to the reporters that the police have not received any complaint from the woman or her family against the Muslim man. Sharma said two of the men seen in the videos have been arrested on the basis of his son’s complaint at the Bisauli police station.

According to the victim’s son, a group of people (Vipin, Vijendra, Suresh, Madanlal among others) came into his home, dragged his father outside, beat him up, abused him and even threatened to kill him.

Vipin, Vijendra, Suresh and Madanlal were booked under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke), 506 (criminal intimidation), 452 (criminal trespass) and 501 (defamation) of the IPC. Vijendra and Madanlal were arrested by police.

His son also denied the allegation against his father. “He has not come home since he was humiliated in public,” he said.
