In a horrific episode, a woman was reportedly stripped, abused, and assaulted in full public view in Gujarat’s Dahod district. The assailants included her estranged husband, it has been reported.
The police were quick to arrest the husband along with three others involved in the incident. Strangely, while the episode occurred on May 28, the police acted only when the video went viral on May 31.
Someone from the village was swift enough to record the incident and post it on social media.
It has come to light that the woman’s estranged husband was furious over her and their children living separately for a year and a half. Reports claimed he kidnapped her from Rampura village. Later, they took her to Margala village where they assaulted her, a Sukhsar police station official said.
“The woman from the tribal community had stopped living with her husband and their four children and was living with a man at Chanasma in Mehsana district where they worked as daily wagers,” he was quoted as saying.
“The man’s mother invited them to attend a wedding at Rampura village in Dahod. She also invited the victim’s estranged husband, who reached there with a group of people on a four-wheeler and kidnapped the woman and her lover and took them to Margala village, where she was stripped and thrashed in full public view,” he said, adding that investigation was underway.
