Woman Paraded Half-Naked By Neighbours Over Affair With Married Man In Rajasthan

Mumbai: A 32-year-old woman was paraded half-naked by her neighbours for allegedly having an affair with a married man in Rajasthan’s Barmer. Eight people, including two women, have been detained after a video of the purported incident surfaced online. A woman pulled her hair and verbally abused her.

“The woman was suddenly attacked by the group—all of her neighbours—on the road when she was going somewhere on Friday,” the police report states. Superintendent of Police Kundan Kawaria stated, “They assaulted her later on and then paraded her around the village in her undies.  

A rumoured social media video of the incident appeared to show her being dragged nude down the road by three to four people, while another woman verbally and physically attacked her.

A statement from one of the accused stated that they would inform the woman’s father about her extramarital romance with a married man in the hamlet over the phone.

“A couple additional individuals who were not shown on camera also participated in the incident. In addition, we’re looking for the individual who took the video,” Kawaria stated.

Following the video went viral on social media, police responded on their own initiative. The SP stated, “We approached the woman right away and forced her to file a formal first information report (FIR), after which we detained eight people.”

Police took a suo moto action after the video was spotted on social media platforms on Saturday. “We immediately approached the woman and made her file a formal first information report (FIR), following which we detained eight people,” the SP said.

Section 323 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) (voluntarily causing hurt), section 509 (insulting the modesty of a woman), section 498 (enticing or taking away a married woman), section 354 A (punishment for a man who engages in unwelcome and explicit sexual behaviour), section 354B (assaulting or using criminal force to any woman with the intention of disrobing or forcing her to be naked), section 342 (wrongful confinement), section 294 (recites or utters obscene song or words), and pertinent sections of the IT Act were all included in the case.

Given the gravity of the situation, police have also established a special investigative team (SIT), which is led by Neeraj Sharma, the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) for Siwana.

“The woman is also being given psychological counselling. We are questioning the accused about the reason for their attack. Further investigation is underway,” said the SP.
