NCHRO Rajsthan Chapter file complaint in NHRC.
A young woman and her lover were mobbed, stripped and paraded naked by residents in Kasotia village under Kanod police station of the district. It was the punishment decided by the villagers as they were angry because the woman had left her husband’s home to live with her lover without seeking a community sanction. Not contented by the inhumane treatment, the villagers including the woman’s husband and his family members went a step ahead to torture the victims by keeping them tied up in the same position for two days and a night.
People jeered at them, clicked pictures and even posted it on the social media. The incident took place on June 20, however, no one including the Patwari, government school teachers and medical staff, some of them even eyewitnesses of the incident, dared to report the matter to the authorities. The villagers charged 80 thousand rupees from the man’s family and released him on Wednesday 22 June while the woman was rescued by the police from her husband’s custody on Friday 24 june morning.
