In the video, a man and his wife were bathing in the Sarayu river of UP’s Ayodhya. The man kissed his wife in the river, which allegedly led to a scuffle as people standing nearby started thrashing him.
People started pushing and thrashing the man and pulled him out of the river. During this whole time, his wife kept trying to save him.
But the mob dragged the couple out of the river. Some men in the group also said, “we will not tolerate such vulgarity in our Ayodhya.”
