A shocking video has emerged on Internet, showing a boy being thrown into ashes of Holika dahan.

The video reportedly from Bisrakh village, Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh has gone viral on social media.

The video shows a group of 5-6 individuals callously throwing the boy into the ashes. The entire incident was captured on a CCTV. According to the video footage, the boy, visibly in pain, immediately tried to flee the ashes.

 

Later, he was seen putting on his footwear and then left the scene.

The boy suffered burns on his feet, said some media reports.

In a post on X, a user identified as Kavita Chauhan Journalist has shared the disturbing video and images of the injured legs, indicating burns sustained by the boy.

However, the police claimed that the boy while playing with his friends fell on the ashes.

“When Bisrakh police station investigated, it was found that the said child was playing with his friends and while playing, he had fallen on the ashes left after the burning of Holika. This was not done by anyone. No complaint has been received at the police station in this regard,” said DCP of Central Noida in Hindi.
