An Alleged Rapist Was Pardoned After He Touched His Victim's Feet

The panchayat had declared that the rapist would be pardoned if he touched the victim's feet for forgiveness.

In a twisted turn of events, a local panchayat pardoned an alleged rapist because he touched the victim's feet in an act of asking for forgiveness.

YES!

The victim, who is a 30-year-old widow, was a worker at a levelling project in Meergunj in January, and was raped by a man named Rohtash, who was incharge of the workers. He had threatened her that he would kill her if she complained.

However, the survivor went and lodged a complaint in the Meergunj police station, where the constables allegedly refused to file her complaint and instead called the village pradhan. The pradhan arrived with the accused and called a panchayat that ordered the rapist to touch the victim's feet. The rapist was pardoned after that and the victim was told to not speak of the crime again.

The matter has now been brought to the notice of the superintendent of police, who has reprimanded Meergunj's police and has made them lodge a complaint. He has also declared that, if the allegations were proven to be true, then strict action will be taken against the accused as well as the panchayat.
