UDAIPUR: A Dalit woman was stripped, beaten up mercilessly by a mother-son duo in Aalod village under Dungla police station limits of Chittorgarh district.
The accused and victim were neighbours and had an ugly verbal spat a few days back. This humiliation was a result of quarrel.
The perpetrators stripped the woman’s lehenga and hit her severely on her thighs and private parts. She sustained multiple
injuries and fractures on two fingers of her right hand. A case under the Schedule Caste and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities)
Act has been registered. The investigation is being done by Badi Sadri DSP Ashish Kumar.
The incident took place on January 28 at the village hand pump where 45-yearold Sosar Bai wife of Dalichand Meghwal was
washing clothes when the accused Chandi Bai wife of Lal and her son Kishan Teli came on a motorcycle.
Chandi, who had a verbal spat with the victim few days ago, caught hold of her hands and asked her son to thrash the Dalit
woman. The duo stripped her and Kishan hit her with the motorcycle chain. The woman shouted for help, but none of the
villagers interfered.
“I was working in my field when someone told me that Kishan Singh and his mother had beaten my wife. When I went there, I
saw my wife lying unconscious in tattered clothes. Blood was oozing out from her fingers. We rushed her to Dungla Hospital
from where the doctor referred her to Chittorgarh district hospital. We lodged a police complaint the same evening,” Dalichand
said.
The man also said that no lady constable was sent to accompany his wife for medical examination. It was known that Chandi
had spoken badly about Sosar Bai’s character and said that it had been the reason for the break-up of engagement of her son.

Sosar too had given an apt reply which had instigated the mother-son duo who found an opportunity to serve the woman a
lesson for the insult. Meanwhile, the investigation officer said the case has been registered under Section 341, 323, 354, 34 and
506 of the IPC and Sections 3(1) (r) and 3 (1) (s) of the SC&ST Act. The victim’s statement under 164 of the CrPC would be registered on Monday, he
said.
