In a horrific case of sexual harassment, a Haryana woman was raped by her father-in-law, while her husband tried to force her into prostitution. The victim lodged a complaint against both the offenders in the women's police station in Nuh, Haryana. The victim was produced before a magistrate where her statement was recorded, after a case was registered by the police.
The 25-year-old victim originally from Alwar in Rajasthan, got married to Shakir of Pipaka village in Nuh district. She stated that her father-in-law Tayyab, began harassing her from the early days of her marriage. What was worse more shocking was the attitude of her husband. He tried to force her into prostitution and when she resisted his attempts, he began beating her up. Her father-in-law took her to Tauru town, 16 km away from Nuh, where he raped her. When she reported this incident to her husband, he beat her up alleging that she was trying to tarnish his father's reputation.
The police registered a case against Shakir and Tayyab who are absconding, under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
