An 18-year-old Muslim girl in Nawada district, Bihar was tied to a tree and caned by her family members for loving a Hindu boy. Her punishment was allegedly a result of the village panchayat's diktat.

The incident happened on Wednesday (October 3) in Jogiya Maran village falling under Rajauli police station in Nawada. She remained tied to the tree for around five hours.

When she was being thrashed, no one came to her rescue.

The 18-year-old girl, daughter of Mohammad Farid Ansari, fell in love with Rupesh Kumar who hails from a neighbouring village.

"She was tied because she is a criminal. She wants to go with a man from another religion."

Both of them wanted to marry but the girl's family was against the union.

On September 30, the girl fled form her village to stay with Kumar. When the family learnt of her absence, they started looking for her.

The girl's family came to know that she was with Kumar and soon went to his place to bring her back.

Thereafter, the panchayat was convened which directed the girl's family to punish her for dishonouring the village. The girl was then tied to a tree and caned.

The police received the incident's information and reached the spot. They took the girl's statement. The alleged perpetrators were not arrested but instead were given a warning.

The police are also looking for Rupesh Kumar who is on the run.
