Youth burnt alive in India for listening loud music
Justice S R Waghmare of the Indore bench also directed police to provide security to the victim's family and witnesses.
Brother of victim, Aban, with help of Jagrut Dalit Aadivasi Sangathan (JADS) had filed the writ petition on Friday.
Madiya, 16, a tribal boy of Acchhoda village in Dhar district was thrashed, burnt alive and his body hung from a tree on by upper caste men for listening to loud music on his mobile phone.
He had refused to lower the volume of music while cycling past a group of upper caste boys.
The Independence Day shame was hushed up, word didn't trickle out of the village and police didn't act despite pleas from family members.
Anand Mohan Mathur, counsel for petitioner, said accused, Hariram Patidar and Saligram Patidar had ordered Madiya to lower the decibels and this sparked off an argument.
Later, the boys associated with the village seva dal came in a group and assaulted Madiya, set him on fire and hung his charred body from a tree in front of his house.
The body was found by Madiya's grandmother in the middle of the night and soon villagers gathered to witness the horror.
On August 16, police took the body for autopsy, but no FIR was lodged.
