News Verification: The video viral claiming that no action was taken against the culprits who abducted young women is not true. The mobile phone footage was shot by an unknown relative in the village of Kalu Khan Ki Dhani in the Jodphur district of the northern Indian state of Rajasthan. In the video, two persons can be seen beating up a woman and forcibly taking away a girl on a tractor.

The girl’s age was not reported but she is known to be under 18, the minimum age for girls to marry in India. Boys can wed at 21.

The video has been widely shared on social media platforms over this years.

As per dnaindia,the incident is from Rajasthan. Two men were arrested after a video of them abducting a minor girl and beating up her mother in Bap tehsil of Jodhpur did the rounds on social media. 

The incident took place in Kalu Khan Ki Dhani village of Bap tehsil in Jodhpur district on September 11, informed investigating officer Bhanwarlal Vishnoi. 

According to reports, the incident happened after the girl's father Aamad Khan reportedly married her to a man named Shaukat.

However, the girl's mother, Nemat, was against it as the girl has not reached the legal age of marriage and she wanted to keep her daughter with her until she reached 18.

But this infuriated Khan and on 11 September he along with his friend reached the girl's place and forcibly took the girl away.
