Muslim youth beaten and sodomized using iron rod

A Muslim youth suspected of stealing a mobile phone was allegedly stripped, thrashed and sodomised with an iron rod in Rajasthan's Barmer district around three weeks ago, his brother said in an FIR filed on 20 Feb 2020 after a video of the assault surfaced on social media. According to the brother of the Barmer victim, his sibling kept quiet about the attack on him at Tirsingri village on January 29 until someone shared a video clip purportedly showing two men attacking him repeatedly and later using a rod to sodomise him. The victim has since not returned home and switched off his mobile phone, his brother said. "The complainant has named one Moti Singh and Bharat Singh as the two men who attacked his brother. Prima facie the role of Moti Singh in the assault has been established on the basis of the available footage. The other accused is being questioned," Barmer SP Sharad Chaudhary told TOI.
