The incident has sparked outrage within the community, and authorities have initiated a thorough investigation into the matter. The police are actively searching for the accused to ensure they face the consequences of their actions.

Cases of violence and discrimination against marginalized communities continue to be a pressing issue in society. The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act aims to protect these communities from such atrocities and ensure justice is served.
