The farmer, A.S. Latti, had allegedly stripped the five boys of Sohian Kalan of their clothes on Sunday and had chased them for at least three km to teach them a lesson.
The victims, who were later found in their undergarments despite rainy and cold weather, narrated the incident to a person from the village who made a video of the same. The video went viral in the past two days.
Though there was tension in the village as the victims belonged to the Dalit community, their families lodged a police complaint only on Wednesday following which police investigated the matter and booked the farmer.
