Girls in a dance group invited to perform in Eid program forced to dance naked in Assam

One vehicle of the dance group was also damaged by the mob

In a shocking incident in Assam, girls in dance troop invited to perform at an Eid celebration were forced to strip and dance naked by rowdy spectators, although they managed to escape.

According to a complaint filed with police by Arup D Rabha, director of the dance group, a special cultural show was organised on the occasion of Eid in the Asolpara village in Chaygaon area in Kamrup District. Kuddus Ali, one of the organisers of the event, had contracted the Rainbow Dance Group of Boko in Assam for performing in the event on 7th June, and an amount of ₹37,000 was agreed upon for the same. Accordingly, the 42-member dance group reached the venue in the evening on that day, but they were surprised to see that there was not any environment of a cultural program there. When they contacted Kuddus Ali, he took them to a weird looking place which was surrounded by corrugated sheet fences on all sides.

When the dance group started their traditional dance performance, around 700-800 youths present their created a ruckus, and started trying to pull the clothes of the girls in the group. Instead of controlling the mob, the members of the organising committee also participated in this assault. They asked the girls to strip and dance sexual numbers naked, and threatened to attack them with daggers if they don’t comply.

Apparently, the organisers had lied to the public that they have invited a naked dance group from Cooch Behar in West Bengal, and had collected a huge sum from the public in this pretext. The complaint says that organisers and spectators touched the girls inappropriately while trying to get them to strip. They also verbally abused the group for refusing to dance naked.

Eventually, the group somehow managed to escape from the barricaded venue, some of them barefoot, and called their friends for help and also called the Boko police station. One vehicle of the dance group was also attacked by axes and steel digger bars, causing substantial damage to the vehicle.

Later in the night, the dance group reached Boko with police escort. The Rainbow dance group’s director Arup D Rabha filed an FIR with Boko police station regarding the incident, where he has named Kuddus Ali, Sayed Khan, Atikul Islam, Samajuddin, Jeherul Islam and Abbas Ali, along with all the members of the organising committee of the event as the accused in the case.

The police have started investigating the case, and have made two arrests so far, Subhahan Khan and Shahrukh Khan.
