In a video widely shared, women rights activist Trupti Desai is seen holding a slipper and beating a man with it in a village near Pune in Maharashtra, India, while people gather around and watch.

Ms Desai, who first shared the video, said she along with another member of her Bhumata Brigade, thrashed the 25-year-old man for allegedly abandoning a young woman after promising to marry her.

The local police arrested the man, identified as Srikant Londhe, after the beating and have charged him with rape. They alleged he had also forced the 24-year-old woman to undergo an abortion.

Amid a debate over vigilantism, Ms Desai has said that the public beating was an attempt to teach the man a lesson.
