In this viral video of the panchayat, it is seen that a large number of people are sitting and a man wearing a shawl is doing sit-ups. After five sit-ups, his sentence was completed and he was released.
Nawada: A shocking incident has come to light in Nawada, Bihar. The accused, who had raped a 5-year-old girl, was made to do a few sit-ups and the matter was cleared. That is, the punishment for a heinous crime like cruelty to a child was completed in a few meetings. Action has been taken on this incident after the video of this case went viral.
The incident pertains to Kanauj village of Akbarpur block of Nawada district, where the miscreants, who indulged in brutality with a 5-year-old innocent, were given a certificate of innocence by the alleged panchs by merely doing a few sit-ups. The name of the accused is being told as Arun Pandit, who runs a chicken farm in the village itself. It is being told that the accused did cruelty to the girl child in the hen form itself. But the manner in which the matter was handled is being strongly condemned.
A purported video of the incident believed to be from November 21 is doing rounds on social media. In the 14-second odd video, the accused is seen doing sit-ups in front of a crowd. The accused has been roaming freely ever since.
पंचायत का यह अनोखा फैसला हैरान कर देने वाला है.
6 साल की मासूम बच्ची से रेप करने वाले आरोपी शख़्स से बस 5 बार उठक-बैठक करवा कर मामला रफा दफा किया गया. आरोपी शख्स अरुण पंडित बताया जा रहा है, जो बिहार के नवादा का है. #rape #Bihar #Nawada #NawadaNews pic.twitter.com/Pjrw0AB2oU
