Thane: Two minor boys stripped and paraded with garlands of slippers for allegedly stealing food

The shop owner and his two sons were arrested after they stripped two minor boys and paraded with garlands of slippers for allegedly stealing a food item from a sweet shop

Two minor boys were stripped and paraded with garlands of slippers for allegedly stealing a food item from a sweet shop, police said today. The shop owner and his two sons were arrested after the shocking incident that took place in Prem Nagar area of Ulhasnagar township last night, they said.

The children, aged 8 and 9 and hailing from different families, went to the neighbourhood shop where they picked up a packet of ‘chakli’ (a snack) without the owner’s permission and ate it. This angered the shop owner, Mehmood Pathan (69), police said.

Mehmood, with help from his sons, caught hold of the duo and chopped off their hair. Not stopping at that, they allegedly stripped the minors, made them wear garlands of slippers and paraded them on the street as punishment.

Annoyed over the humiliation and mistreatment of the children, their parents, who reside in the same locality, lodged a complaint with the Hill Line police. Based on the complaint, Mehmood and his sons Irfan (26) and Salim (22) were arrested around midnight, police said.

The trio was booked under IPC Sections 355 (assault or criminal force with intent to dishonour a person), 500 (defamation) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and also under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, they added.

This incident has come to light two days after two school students were beaten up, stripped and paraded because they allegedly teased and stalked a girl. The incident took place in Warje Malwadi area of Pune on May 16. Its video was circulated on social media.
