A 16-year-old boy was reportedly thrashed by a group of boys, stripped naked and subjected to unnatural sex in Delhi’s Inderpuri area.
Four persons were arrested after an unverified video, in which a boy is being thrashed, with his hands and legs, was circulated by the group yesterday. In the video, the boy can be seen screaming as others tried to push beer bottles through his rectum.
“The boy was thrashed by the group and the perpetrators were drunk. A case of criminal assault and wrongful confinement has been registered in connection with the matter and four persons arrested from a slum cluster in the area,” DCP (Southwest) Surender Kumar said.

According to sources, relatives of the victim alleged that the accused put alcohol and chilly powder on the boy’s genitals, stripped him naked and made him walk across the lanes in the locality. They also said that following the incident, the boy tried to commit suicide.
However, refuting such charges, Kumar said that “the medico-legal counselling report of the boy doesn’t suggest any sexual assault.”
