Begunia police has pressed into action after the merciless thrashing video of the father-son duo from Kadaba village under Bolagarh block in Khordha district by a group named ‘Human Organisation’ went viral on social media.
According to reports, the victims- Manguni Nayak and his son lodged a complaint against seven persons following a field inquiry by Begunia police. Earlier, Khordha SP had directed the local police to visit the village and submit a report about the tragic incident.
In the video, some miscreants can be seen and heard hurling abuses and thrashing a father-son duo mercilessly with sturdy sticks and belt.
According to reports, a group named ‘Human Organisation’ has been trying to include tribal people across Odisha into their fold under the pretext of fighting for the rights of tribal people. It is alleged that the members of the group are collecting membership fees and resorting to lynching those who refuse to join them. Manguni and his son were allegedly roughed up for refusing to join the organisation.
It is worth mentioning that members of this organisation had allegedly beaten a man from Karadagadia village in the district to death sometime back. As many as five persons were arrested in connection with the case.
