A shocking video of a Dalit girl and a boy allegedly being thrashed by a village elder in Andhra Pradesh's Anantpur district has gone viral on social media. The video of the incident surfaced on Friday.

The girl, reportedly a minor, had eloped with her 20-year-old cousin.  In the video, the girl can be seen being hit by the elder as the boy sits with a distressed expression on his face.  The couple was beaten in the presence of others and was later threatened.  

Anantpur district police chief B Yesubabu told NDTV that nobody from the family had come forward to register a complaint against the village elder who had beaten the couple. "They say the elder intervened on their behalf and so they are not willing to complain," the police officer said.

 After the video went viral, child rights activists have contacted authorities demanding immediate action against those involved.
