According to police reports from last night, on Thursday, a tribal lady in Rajasthan’s Pratapgarh district was beaten, stripped naked, and led around her village. A man, who is apparently the husband, is seen stripping the 21-year-old lady outside of their home and flaunting her naked as she pleaded for aid in a horrifying video of the assault.
The woman apparently had a relationship with another man, which is what led to the attack on her, according to the police.
While the Bharatiya Janata Party said that “Rajasthan is again ashamed” as a result of the occurrence, chief minister Ashok Gehlot said he ordered the director general of police to send the ADG (Crime) to the scene and take strong action in this case.
According to district chief of police Amit Kumar, the police detained three persons on Saturday in connection with the incident, including the woman’s husband. The accused attempted to run after seeing the police, according to the police, and was hurt in the process. They are being treated in Pratapgarh’s district hospital, and then they will be brought before the judge.
The woman was in a relationship with another man, according to Dhariyawad SHO Peshawar Khan, who also noted that the incident happened on Thursday.
Umesh Mishra, the director general of police (DGP) for Rajasthan, claimed that she was abducted by her in-laws and taken to their village, where the atrocity occurred. He said that she was staying with another man, which annoyed her in-laws. Mishra said ADG (Crime) Dinesh MN was sent to Pratapgarh on Friday night.
What happened in Rajasthan’s Pratapgarh
The woman is shown being stripped in front of witnesses in the horrifying footage, after which she is paraded in a village while completely naked.
The Pratapgarh superintendent of police, Amit Kumar, is camped out in the area, according to Mishra, who also stated that six squads have been established to arrest the suspects.
Reacting to the incident, Ashok Gehlot took to X (formally Twitter) and wrote, “In Pratapgarh district, a video of a woman being stripped naked by her in-laws due to some family dispute has surfaced. The Director General of Police has been instructed to send ADG Crime on the spot and take strict action in this matter. There is no place for such criminals in a civilised society. These criminals will be put behind bars as soon as possible and punished after being prosecuted in a fast-track court.”
However, the BJP harshly criticized the Gehlot administration, with JP Nadda, its president, claiming that governance in the state is “totally absent” while the chief minister and his cabinet members are engaged in a factional conflict.
Nadda said on X, “The video from Pratapgarh, Rajasthan is shocking. What is worse is governance in Rajasthan is totally absent. The CM and Ministers are busy settling factional squabbles, and the remaining time is spent appeasing one dynasty in Delhi. It’s no wonder the issue of women’s safety is being completely ignored in the state.”
He added, “Every single day, there is an instance of harassment against women. The people of Rajasthan will teach the state Government a lesson.”
The National Commission for Women also condemned the incident.
“NCW vehemently condemns the harrowing incident in Pratapgarh, Rajasthan. A woman was molested, stripped, and recorded on video. Despite it happening two days ago, police inaction is unacceptable. @sharmarekha (NCW chairperson) has instructed the state’s DGP to promptly arrest the culprits and invoke necessary IPC provisions. We demand a comprehensive report within five days,” the NCW said.
