A pregnant woman was stripped and paraded by the kin of her husband’s first wife over a simple argument in Warangal district’s DC Thanda village in India.
According to ZEENEWS, Ravi, a farmer, who is already married to one Swaroopa, secretly married another woman in March last year, Wardhannapet Circle Inspector Satish said.
Ravi then started staying with his second wife in Warangal.
When Swaroopa pleaded for justice, the local authority known as panchayat asked Ravi to pay a fine of Rs 7.5 lakh to her and her two children which led to a heated argument between himself and the first wife, Swaroopa.
Ravi’s second wife, who was pregnant and present at the hearing, argued in favour of her husband.
This action by the new wife angered Swaroopa’s kin who allegedly attacked Ravi first and then they attacked his second wife. The kin stripped and paraded and injured her, police said.
Swaroopa, Ravi and four others have been detained, the officer said, adding that three others have absconded.
Police said the victim was admitted to a local hospital and investigation is on, the report said.
