According to police, on October 6, victim Akshay Dudhele, resident of Dahi gaon in Kardi near Shahpur was talking to his girlfriend. The girl’s brother noticed it and thereafter took Dudhele to a room, stripped him and beat him up along with his friends.

After Dudhele approached me, I followed up the case. Later, I made police register a case,” added Dmello.
After the girl’s brother found that the video had gone viral, he took his sister to the police station and registered a molestation case against Dudhele.
