Woman dies after she was gang-raped, violated with stick by three men including ex-husband
The woman had been to watch a play during the Hindu festival of Kali Puja Wednesday night and was brutally attacked by the three men, one of whom was her ex-husband
According to a shocking new report, a woman breathed her last after she was dragged to a field and raped by her ex-husband and two other men, who later violated her with a stick as well. As per NDTV, the gang-rape victim had been to watch a play at a theater before the incident took place.
The woman, who had gone to watch a play during the Hindu festival of Kali Puja Wednesday night, was brutally attacked by the three men, one of whom was her ex-husband, claimed reports. The men allegedly dragged the woman to a nearby field from the theater in the middle of the play, raped and assaulted her, and then proceeded to abuse her with a stick.
Local police in the Jamtara province of Jharkhand, India, said the victim's neighbors heard the woman crying out for help the morning after, i.e. Thursday, and that is when they took her to the hospital in Narayanpur. The victim, according to the neighbors, kept accusing her ex-husband and two others of the attack in her agony.
Police officer BN Singh said they arrested her ex-husband but his associates still remain at large and the search for them is still on. The victim, as per reports, was referred to the Jamtara Sadar Hospital but was declared dead by the time she got there.
The government has reportedly passed a series of laws which demand an increase in punishment for rape of an adult to 20 years in prison. Earlier this year, the government also approved the death penalty for people convicted of raping children under age 12.
However, it is rare for more than a few weeks to pass without another brutal sexual assault being reported. Previously, just a few days ago, a four-year-old girl was reportedly gang-raped by a nurse and four others while being treated in an intensive care unit for a snake bite.
