According to a report in The Times of India, the video showed a bunch of men groping and being led to a deserted spot. Despite pleas from the girls, the men continue to molest them, while some film it.

After the incident, the police took suo motu cognisance of the matter and lodged the FIR against several people and all residents of Kuva Kheda village of Rampur.

After the incident, Samajwadi leader Azam khan drew flak for saying that such crimes could be avoided by ensuring that women stay at home under strict vigil.

"After the Bulandshahr incident, everyone should try to keep women of the family indoors. Girls should not go to places where there is a brazen dance of shamelessness," said Azam Khan while referring to the July 2016 gang rape of a minor and her mother in Bulandshahr.

He also flayed the current BJP government saying that under their rule women were not safe.

In the past, the Supreme Court ordered Khan to apologise for referring to the  Bulandshahr case as a 'political conspiracy'.
