    Telangana: BJP leader beats 2 Dalit men, forces them to dip in muddy pond

    The video from Nizamabad district shows Mr. Bharat Reddy forcing the Dalit men - aged around 30 - to get into murky waters of a pond and take a dip. The altercation was sparked apparently because the two men objected to gravel mining in the area.

    According to reports, the men pleaded to be forgiven and even fell at his feet. But the leader is seen using a stick to chase them into the dirty water.

    As they take a dip with folded hands, Reddy stood on the bank and watched and verbally abuses them. He even captures the scene on his cellphone. An aide who is waiting beside a motorbike did not intervene.
