IN a shocking incident, two 13-year-old boys were “brutally beaten up, stripped and paraded naked”, following allegations that one of them had teased a girl who studied in the same school as him. The entire incident was videographed.

The incident took place at Karve Nagar in Pune on Tuesday night. Police have arrested four accused, including the father of the girl, and detained a minor. The police action came on the basis of a complaint filed by the mother of one of the boys, who approached the police after watching the video.

Based on her complaint, Warje Malwadi police have arrested Navin Khurana (47), Yash Navin Khurana (19), Raju Devasi (24) and Pradeep Salunkhe (35).

One of the boys and the girl go to the same school, said a police officer. Due to a “misunderstanding”, the girl’s father assumed that he was troubling his daughter, he said.

      What is painful is society's indifference to boys ual abuse, we live in a society where it is perfectly fine to ually torment boys and even if boy commits suicide unable to bear the mental agony of ual abuse no one including his parents will regret losing their son. As in our country it is perfectly alright to strip boy naked and many parents support this heinous crime. I have realised one thing in my life human rights and POSCO is not applicable to boys. I hope to see ministry for male child welfare one day.

        Boys can be stipped naked as there is no law to protect boys from ual abuse in this country. Boys are taken for granted and our lawmakers and our judiciary are silently supporting the rape of boys and making them lifelong psychiatric patient which can not cured

          This is what happening in Modi's India. Every person is now caretaker of law. Police is busy in making money through bribes from traffic crimes.
