Two men said to be notorious for petty crimes were made to hold their ears and do sit-ups by the police in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday evening. The two are seen taking their "punishment" as people watch and clap from their balconies in Indore.
The men were asked to kneel down and apologise to the residents. Police claim the two men, Ajay Thakur and Vijay Vishwakarm, are "known criminals" in the area and they had tried to "stab" someone recently.

A knife was also found on them, the police office said, adding that "since the local people were scared of the two men, we paraded them and made them do sit ups".
