Lucknow: In a shocking incident, a Class 10 boy was stripped, assaulted and forced to consume alcohol by a group of boys, including his classmates, in Uttar Pradesh's Jhansi on Monday.

In his complaint, the victim told the police that he was with his friend in a park when his classmates, who came in a car, approached him and just as he went to the car, they pulled him inside. The boy who had borrowed the money from the victim was also among them. The boys told the victim student that they were going to the forest to watch Army's target practice. Upon reaching there, the victim found two more boys waiting for him. He alleged that they were drunk and they forced him to consume alcohol, following which they started beating him up with belts and sticks. The six boys even forced him to remove his clothes, he alleged. He told police that he kept asking for mercy and to let him go but they continued to assault him.
