Three minors in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, physically attacked and made an 11-year-old Muslim boy recite Hindu slogans after deceiving him by taking him to a pond in the Nipania area on the pretext of buying toys.
A video is being widely shared on social media that shows the 11-year-old Muslim boy, who was forced to strip, chanting slogans such as “Jai Shri Ram,” “Hindustan Zindabad,” and “Pakistan Murdabad.”
After managing to escape, the boy informed his family about the incident, and they filed a complaint with the police.
The 11-year-old boy’s parents have lodged a complaint with the police, leading to the registration of a first information report (FIR) against the accused. They have been charged with causing hurt (Section 323), committing an obscene act in public (Section 294), and kidnapping for wrongful confinement (Section 365) under the Indian Penal Code.
This is from Mahalaxmi Nagar, Indore.
