Four people have been arrested for allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old boy in southwest Delhi’s Inderpuri, said police.

The teenager’s family members have alleged he was stripped naked, paraded and sexually assaulted by the accused, but police have denied their claims.

The incident took place a few days ago but police said the boy’s family members informed them about it Wednesday. One of the accused captured the entire incident on his cellphone camera, said sources.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) Surender Kumar said, “In the medico-legal case, there is no history of sexual assault. In the video, there is no evidence of the minor being stripped naked or assaulted. However, the video shows that the minor was bullied and paraded. We have arrested four people in connection with the case.”

A case has been registered under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement), 34 (common intention) of the IPC at the Inderpuri police station.

The four accused were drunk at the time of the incident, said a police officer. “They got involved in a brawl with the minor. We don’t know the reason behind their fight,” he added.

The video of the incident shows a boy, allegedly the victim, being tied up. He can be seen screaming as he is beaten up and sexually assaulted by the four accused. Later, he is seen naked, as the accused, whose voices can be heard on the video, harass him.
