Bihar, Patna ,July1: Two lovers were tied to a tree and thrashed after they were caught in a compromising position in Gopinathpur village of Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old woman had been in a relationship with a 27-year-old man for 4 years. Both were natives of Sitamarhi district.

After learning about the case, the panchayat directed that both be tied to a tree and caned.
The locals carried out the panchayat’s diktat. The duo was tied to a tree and beaten up. Even as the incident took place in front of the entire village, there was not a murmur of protest from anyone.
The police learnt about the incident only after video of the entire incident went viral on social media.
The police on Thursday registered an FIR in this case after recording the victim woman’s statement. Five people from the village, who have been named in the FIR, were part of the panchayat that passed the order.
Muzaffarpur DSP Krishna Murari Prasad said, “The police was informed about the incident and based on the complaint of the victim woman, an FIR has been filed against five people involved in this incident. A manhunt has been launched to arrest those absconding.”
