"The investigation into the matter is underway and strict action will be taken against the accused," he added.

Last week, an eight-year Dalit boy suffered severe burn injuries after he was made to sit on hot tiles as a punishment for an alleged theft in Maharashtra's Arvi.

It is alleged that the boy was made to take off his clothes and sit on the tiles which were simmering due to the scorching heat.
