Actually, Saroj Damle, a resident of Bakhrutola, has a love marriage with a woman from the village. Since then, the couple and their families have been facing difficulty living due to some villagers. It is alleged that the newly married couple is being harassed. They are humiliated by calling a meeting in the village. At the same time, food and drink have been refused to be given to the shopkeeper of the village.
The victim’s mother Paragabai said that Devsagar Gupta, Charan Sahu, Bhishan Sahu, Kishore Sahu, Bhupendra Sahu, and other people of the village have been very upset. Their son was abused and beaten up by these people. Their son and daughter-in-law are fed up and forced to live outside the village in the city. The victim’s mother also alleged that the bullies of the village are associated with the BJP. Because of this, they are bullying and creating terror. Several complaints have also been made to the police in this incident. But, due to political pressure, the police are reprimanding them instead of taking action. The victim’s family says that now they are pleading for justice from the government.
