The viral claim is false that the Khap Panchayat of UP has recently given an order to rape two Dalit sisters in the village. This incident is five years old when Akhilesh Yadav was the Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh.
A clipping of a Hindi newspaper is going viral on social media claiming that this incident happened during the tenure of Yogi Adityanath government. The clipping of the news says that the brothers of both the sisters were having a love affair with a Jat girl. After the marriage of that girl, the young man ran away with the married woman, after which the Khap Panchayat gave the order to rape his sister.
A Facebook user Chandan Kumar Chaudhary shared the picture of newspaper cutting with a message "In Yogi Jee's Ram Rajya, the Khap panchayat of Baghpat area has issued an order to rape two Dalit sisters and force them to walk naked in the village. Congratulations Dalit brothers, India of your dreams is moving fast towards the Hindu nation". (Translated from Hindi)
In the investigation, we found that the claim being made with this picture is false. Actually this incident is of 2015 when there was a Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh under the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav.
With the help of related keywords search, we found the news report of Hindustan Times published in August 2015 along with heading "Rape the sisters, says UP Khap panchayat for brother's action". According to the article 'A Khap panchayat in Uttar Pradesh has issued a diktat that a Dalit women should be raped and paraded naked in their village as revenge for their brother’s action of eloping with a married girl from the Jat community'.
Apart from this, we found a tweet from the official Twitter account of Baghpat police clarifying that the incident is from 2015.
In 2015, Uttar Pradesh had the Samajwadi Party government under the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav.
In conclusion, the viral claim is false that the Khap Panchayat of UP has recently given an order to rape two Dalit sisters in the village. This incident is five years old when Akhilesh Yadav was the Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh.
