A 35-year-old tribal woman was paraded naked and beaten up by villagers as she left her husband for another man in the district of Alipurduar in West Bengal. The incident took place on June 10, after the woman returned to her husband’s house after six months. As per the sources, she was completely cornered by the entire village. Hereafter, in a Kangaroo court, the elders of the Village decided to punish her by stripping off her clothes as a form of punishment.
However, the police got to know about it when a video of the incident was widely circulated on social media where the women was heard saying, “Mariya na kitna mariyega (beat me as much as you can)”.
After the incident the women left for her parents home in Assam. On the night of June 13, she was brought back by the police and a complaint was registered. On June 14, the three arrested were produced in the Alipurduar court and are now under the police custody.
