The "punishment" was meted out to the man and two of his cousins as the man had eloped with a married woman. According to a report in The Times of India, the husband of the woman who was thrashed was also involved in beating the victims.
The two girls were beaten as they allegedly helped the woman to run away from her house. Shockingly, the villagers who numbered in hundreds watched the whole episode unfold in front of their eyes and still nobody came forward to help the distressed man and his cousins.
