The Inside Story

Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh

Woman kept locked in cowshed, repeatedly raped for three years

A 20-year-old woman from Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh was locked in a cowshed for three years and repeatedly raped by her husband, his relatives, and neighbors after her family failed to meet dowry demands. The woman faced sexual exploitation for 36 months until she was sold to a moneylender for Rs 50,000 this May, as her parents were unable to pay the dowry. Even when she fell critically ill, a neighbor who took her to the hospital allegedly raped her on the way.

The victim's relative later spotted her at the moneylender's house and reported the matter to her father. On July 1, the woman and her relatives went to the police and narrated the harrowing tale. The woman was married to Anand Kurmi of Parasri Tyonda village five years ago. Soon after the marriage, the in-laws allegedly began mentally and physically torturing her for more dowry. "They had demanded Rs one lakh during the wedding, which we paid," said victim's father Ram Kisan, a farmer with a meagre land holding of 2.5 acre.

The police registered a case against ten persons, including the husband, in-laws, and others under several sections of the IPC. Police arrested three of the accused, including Khadak Singh, who raped her on the way to the health center, moneylender Dwarka Prasad, and Ram Singh, who sold the victim. The woman's tragic story highlights the continued existence of the evil practice of dowry and sexual exploitation in Indian society.
