As a matter of fact, this is an old video from Pali in Rajasthan, where some people punished the man for having an extramarital affair. The victim and accused are from the same caste.

We visited bhaskar, which published an article on this incident with the headline “Inhumanity in the name of punishment: In Rajasthan, after having an affair with a married woman, a young man was given water and urine in his shoes, five arrested.” about 4 years ago. Because the victim had an affair with a married woman of the same village, the accused were upset with her. The accused forced the young person to drink water in shoes and urine in a liquor bottle during the altercation. The victim’s brother and uncle were summoned to the residence by the accused, who subsequently tied them to a tree for the duration of the night. When the victim’s parents got home the following morning, the culprit demanded Rs 5,000 from them as retribution. The victim was hounded by the accused, who threatened to have him leave the village. This case has been filed by Sumerpur Police in connection to the events of June 11 on the night of June 15.  Laxmanram Devasi, Jawanaram, Bhimaram, Navaram, and Dargaram Devasi, the five accused, were taken into custody early on Tuesday morning.
