Koderma: A woman was allegedly stripped and her hair was chopped off on suspicion of her having an illicit relationship with her 22-year-old nephew. The incident happened on August 21 in Koderma district of Jharkhand.

The woman alleged that she had revealed her nephew's advances to some women of Dengodih village but instead of helping her, a women panchayat was called on August 21, where she was beaten and her hair was chopped off.

The woman later filed a complaint and said that she was dragged out of her house and brought before the panchayat comprising mostly women, to punish her.

The woman also alleged that the nephew was taking advantage of her when her husband was not there over the last three months.

Koderma SP M Tamil Vanjan said that eleven people have been identified in the case.

However, no arrests have been made yet.

In another incident in Andhra Pradesh's Anantapur district, a 17-year-old girl was beaten up by a village elder during a village panchayat in which she and her 20-year-old cousin were pulled up for eloping and bringing a bad name to their families and the village.

At the panchayat, the couple was made to sit down and humiliated in front of all villagers.

Enraged over the girl's refusal to stop having any relation with the youth, 70-year-old Lingappa started thrashing her, first with bare hands and then with a stick. He even kicked her and thrashed the girl.
