Lawlessness took over in Madhya Pradesh, when a man and his two sisters (including a minor) were tied to a tree and thrashed for hours. 

According to The Times of India, the incident took place in Arjun colony area of Madhya Pradesh. The man and his 2 sisters were allegedly beaten because he eloped with the attacker’s wife. The sisters were molested for ‘helping their brother elope’.

Reports state that hundreds stood and watched but nobody came to rescue the siblings. Instead, videos were apparently recorded and lewd comments were passed on the girls who were helpless as they were molested and whipped mercilessly. 

Local children were said to be seen enjoying the act and laughing as the victims were beaten for three to four hours.
