After a purported video of a girl being thrashed and paraded went viral on social media, the district police have taken cognizance of the issue and have started looking for the victim.

"We received the video through WhatsApp. We are currently looking for the girl in the video. We have not received any complaint yet. We are also verifying the video," Superintendent of Police (SP) Vipul Shrivastava said on Tuesday.
