A 22-year-old married woman from Chandigarh has alleged that she was raped by 40 men for four consecutive days after being held captive at a guest house in Morni area of Haryana’s Panchkula district, following which three people were arrested, police said today.
In a complaint lodged with the Chandigarh Police at Manimajra police station yesterday, the woman alleged that she was held captive for four days where the accused took turns to rape her. The woman’s husband told reporters that she was promised job at the guest house by a person known to them, adding she was drugged for four days, raped and threatened that she and her husband would be “eliminated” if she revealed the incident to anyone.
While, the Chandigarh Police lodged an FIR in Manimajra police station after the woman approached them with the complaint, the case was being transferred to the Panchkula Police, under whose jurisdiction the alleged incident took place.
Honour killing: Woman burnt alive by father 
A 19-year-old woman who was leaving her home to marry a man outside her caste was allegedly burnt to death by her father in a Madhya Pradesh village this morning, in what appears to be a suspected case of honour killing, police said.
The incident took place in Chainpur Sarkar village in Khandwa district, around 250 km from Bhopal. Laxmi Bai’s father, Sundar Lal Yadav (52), has been arrested and his brother, Rajendra Yadav (28), detained, a police official said.
Initial inquiry revealed that the family members opposed her decision to marry a man who belonged to another caste. However, she remained adamant and this apparently enraged her family members, Khalwa police station in-charge Kailash Panse said.
When the woman was leaving her home at around 7.30 am, her father stopped her and allegedly set her on fire by pouring kerosene over her. The girl died on the spot, Panse said.
Neighbours rushed to the spot after hearing screams of the woman and informed the police. The body has been sent for post-mortem and further investigations are underway, he added.
DMK slams AIADMK govt over crime against women
The DMK today demanded strong measures and punishment for all those involved in the alleged rape of a 11-year-old girl and a Russian woman as it slammed the AIADMK government for ‘failure’ to ensure women’s safety and security.
Expressing outrage and shock over the assault, party working president M K Stalin said “Strong (legal) measures are needed to punish the perpetrators.”
Stalin, also the Leader of the Opposition in the Tamil Nadu assembly, in a statement listed out various incidents of crime against women in the state in the recent past. He alleged that such crimes continued since the AIADMK government did not pay attention to women’s safety and security. Recalling a 13-point action plan of late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in 2013 to ensure women’s safety and prevent incidents of sexual harassment, the DMK leader alleged the government neither bothered to implement it nor took proper action against the perpetrators.
