In a shocking incident in Rajasthan, a rape victim and her family in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district have been boycotted and ostracized from the village after the victim refused to change her statement in the court against the accused.
They have not been able to buy vegetables or get groceries from the ration shop in their village.
The bizarre diktat was passed by the village panchayat which made sure the family did not get any support from the community. As a punishment, the family was even forced to pay fine of Rs 11, 000.
The family of the accused has submitted a written complaint with the police against the Panchayat's Diktat.
The accused allegedly gave the victim some intoxicating substance and made some videos, which he used later to blackmail and rape her.
The victim later filed the case against the accused.
