Taking laws into own hands, sexual abuses, violence, kidnapping and murdering someone has become very common in our society. #JusticeForRehan has been trending on the internet for a while now since a heartbreaking video was circulated on social media of a 17-year-old boy being brutally beaten to death. According to reports the incident took place on Saturday, when two alleged robbers entered a bungalow in Bahadurabad for a robbery. Rehan was caught by the security guard while the other robber managed to escape.
The bungalow’s owner and neighbors tied Rehan’s hands to the grill, took off his pants forcefully and constantly kept beating him though he was seen requesting them in the video to not to hit on his head and eventually, Rehan lost his life. According to journalists, Rehan’s father said that his son worked as a butcher on Eid-ul-Adha and told him that he was going to collect his money but never came back.
The entire incident had been recorded on a mobile phone which was later surfaced on the social media. After seeing the video apart from many other people, celebrities took a stand on social media with tweets against the heinous crime and demanded prompt action against the culprits who took laws in their hands.
Oh my God my heart. How could they do that?? How could they kill a boy? Torture him? How did not a single person stop it!!!! We have become so bloody desensitized we freaking record videos calmly while someone is beaten to death!!! #JusticeForRehan

To the poor teen from baharaduabad who was killed mercilessly on a mere suspicion of burglary (just a suspicion). They tortured him for two hours and did not stop even though there was a call to prayer (azaan) in the background. #RIP kid, your crime is that you were born poor.

Beating a teenager to death. What has this world come to. An example needs to be set so that this kind of a hideous crime is never committed again. #justiceforRehan
