Police Probe Parade Of Naked Young Girls

Police probe parade of naked young girls for rain ritual in Indian village

Police officials on Tuesday probed Indian villagers who paraded six naked girls, as part of rituals to summon rains and bring relief from drought-like situation.

The incident took place in the parched Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh state in India, according to a report.

Regional Police Chief, DR Teniwar, told reporters that the videos surfaced on Indian social media networks, showing the girls walking naked with a frog tied to a wooden shaft on their shoulders.

“We received information that some young girls were paraded naked to appease rain gods, as part of a long-held superstition and prevailing social evils.”

Police had not received any formal complaint about the incident, but had launched an investigation.

“Action will be taken if it is found that the girls were forced to walk naked,” he added.

Separately, India’s National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, has sought a report from the local administration.

Domestic reports said some women accompanied the girls, who appeared to range in age, from 5 to 12, singing devotional songs, with the procession collecting food grains, for a community feast at a local temple.

District official, S Krishna Chaitanya, stated that the young girls parents had consented to the ritual and had even participated.

“In such cases, the administration can only make the villagers aware about the futility of such superstition and make them understand that such practices do not yield desired results.’’

Such bizarre rituals to please the rain gods are not uncommon in India.

These included women ploughing fields naked at midnight or marrying off donkeys in elaborate ceremonies.
