Village Panchayat Directs Family To Offer Non-Veg Feast To Purify Girl Who Survived Rape

Village Panchayat - Sakshi Post

Rajgarh: A Madhya Pradesh village panchayat directed the father of a girl to host non-vegetarian dinner in the village to "purify" his daughter as she was allegedly raped by a man from the lower caste, reported news agency ANI.

The girl's father alleged that village panchayat declared his family an outcast and treated them as untouchables after he failed to follow the directive to organise a community feast that would "purify" his daughter.

"Until the feast is organised, we won't be included in the cast and village," the girl's father told news agency ANI.

"The father of the girl complained in January that the panchayat had declared them outcast until they organise a feast with non-veg food. Police have questioned the villagers, nothing of the sort has come to fore," police officer Nawal Singh Sisodia said. (Agencies )
