On September 7, six minor girls in a drought-parched village of Damoh, Madhya Pradesh were stripped and paraded naked as part of a village ritual to summon rains.
Videos that went viral on social media reportedly showed young girls walking naked with a wooden shaft on their shoulders which had a frog tied to it.
Locals believe the ritual will appease the rain god and bring rainfall to the region.
Six woman were booked by the Damoh administration and two journalists also will face charges for sharing the videos on social media.
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has taken note and has sought a report from the district collector.
Taking cognizance of the matter, BBA has filed a written complaint to the Additional Director General of Police – Crime Against Women Cell and Additional Inspector General of Police – Crime Investigation Department and with the SCPCR (State Commission for Protection of Child Rights).
