A shocking video has surfaced from Telangana's Nizamabad district, two Dalit men are being "punished" by an angry man, believed to be BJP leader Bharat Reddy. When one of them tries to tell him what he was doing was wrong as he did not have permission, the BJP leader scolds him and threatens to beat him up. The video also shows the BJP leader cursing and beating the two youngsters with a stick, before forcing them into the pond.

Later, Reddy took Rajeshwar and Lakshman to a dirty pond, which is said to be used for defecation, and forced them to take a dip in it.

Reddy tried to thrash the Dalits after they reportedly tried to stop him from extracting gravel from fields near the Errakunta pond.

Locals say the men, identified as Laxman and Haggadah who are residents of Avanipatnam village in Navipeta mandal, had dared to complain against the alleged illegal mining activities, digging for gravel. AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi demanded that action be taken on such mob violence.
