  • Share

Summary

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)

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.
