19-yr-old rape victim, forced to marry her rapist, kills self after dowry harrasment

suicide

Chandigarh: Unable to bear the incessant physical and mental torture from her in-laws, a 19-year old rape victim, who was forced to marry her rapist, committed suicide by hanging herself on Tuesday.

According to reports, the girl was raped in October 2015, following which her family filed a case against her rapist Anuj.

She eventually married her rapist earlier on March this year on the intervention of the local khap panchayat. In July, she was also forced to depose in favour of her rapist-turned-husband in court, thus clearing him of all charges.

But the girl was subjected to severe mental and physical abuse by her in-laws, seeking dowry, to settle the debts that they had incurred fighting the rape case.

The victim’s mother also alleged that the girl was killed by her husband’s family and was later hanged.

A case has been filed at the local police station.
