Twelve people were arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Kushinagar district on Wednesday, September 10, for allegedly parading a man and a woman in a village, forcing them to wear garlands of shoes and blackening their faces.
A purported video of the incident went viral on social media, which took place in the Hata police station area of Kushinagar.
