And when videos of the inhumane behaviour go viral on social media, the netizens are the first to spot it and comment on it for being outrageous. A video of a man, woman, and a girl being forced to dance with tyres around their neck went viral on social media. And the reason ought to make you angry. It was because the couple was found to be eloping.

The 13-year-old girl in the village, who was also forced to dance with the couple, was punished for allegedly helping them elope. The police registered a case against five people and arrested three of them on Tuesday after the video of the incident went viral on social media.
Arrest by police is very good action. But the output of the arrest will not come. Simply they got bail and free. The accused will go for another crime. No meaning of arrest. It's all about eye wash. Tribal suffering will continue to another way.

I DARE YOU TELL ME #CASTE is a thing of the past. That reservation is unfair. That caste based violence don't exist. I hope you have enough brains to understand @Simi_Garewal in #AranyerDinRatri is a UC fantasy and bears no resemblance to reality. https://t.co/vDeWzRtwwC

Till these kind of uncivilised barbaric acts continue , we have no right to be proud of our society/country. We are sinking every day to a new low.

What made the video even more enraging was the fact that there was a man in the video that was hitting the couple and the girl with sticks while they were dancing. And the inhumane part of it was that the person who shot the video could be heard laughing along with others present in the video.
According to the police, the 19-year-old woman had gone missing from her home in July this year. It was revealed that her family members were angry as she had fled with a man. They suspected that another young girl (seen in the video) helped the woman in fleeing from her home. And so when the couple returned home in the second week of September, they punished the couple.
Honestly, it makes me sick! How can people be so inhumane towards another person, and in this case, their own child. The viral video has attracted a lot of criticism and backlash from the netizens who watched it. And if you ask me, their enrage is extremely valid!
