Days after a youth was tied to a bike and dragged on busy Cuttack streets over non-payment of dues, a similar horror of 'Talibani justice' has been witnessed in the Silver City again. 

A youth was allegedly forced to kneel-down over a petty issue on a street of the city on Saturday in another inhumane incident. 

The video of the entire unsavoury act reported to have taken place at a road in Pratap Nagari area over a car overtaking case is doing rounds of social media platforms. 

In the viral video, some miscreants can be seen torturing the youth with no remorse. And when some local youths raised their voice against the atrocity, the miscreants showed little hesitancy in assaulting them as well. 

Meanwhile, a complaint has been filed against 10 miscreants. It is learnt that one among the 10 accused is a relative of a minister of Odisha.  

Notably, a few days back, a disturbing video of a youth tied to a motorcycle and dragged on the busy streets of Cuttack’s Mission Road over alleged nonpayment of Rs 1,500 had surfaced, raising serious questions on the law and order situation.  

In the video, which has gone viral on social media, the youth’s hand was seen tied to a bike while four-five youths riding two bikes can be seen dragging him on the road.
