A 20-year-old Dalit youth was paraded naked by armed persons at Pakhoke village late last evening. Brutally tortured, Amritpal Singh alias Amrit was admitted to the civil hospital here. His condition is serious.

Sources said a minor quarrel over the bursting of crackers led to the shocking incident. The Sadar police have booked Gurmeet Singh and his sons Raja and Shera for assault, attempt to murder and under the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. The rest of the suspects are yet to be identified. 

Yadwinder Singh, SHO, said raids were being conducted to nab them.  Amritpal was working at his cycle repair shop when the accused, who were reportedly armed, came in an SUV and two jeeps. One of them pointed a gun at him and he jumped into a nearby canal to save himself. 

The assailants went after him, took him out and thrashed him mercilessly. Stripped, he was paraded naked in the village. The police reached the site more than an hour later. 

Raj Kaur, the victim’s mother, claimed the attackers fired indiscriminately at her son. She said the family had found 20 empty cartridges at the crime spot. These had been handed over to the police, she said.
