Rajasthan, Nov 10: Yet another shocking decision by community panchayat in Rajasthan came to fore in which the panchayat members in a tribal area of Rajsamand district stripped a 45-year-old woman, blackened her face and then paraded her on a donkey's back on Saturday evening.

As per a TOI report, "The matter came to light after the victim's husband lodged an FIR, the police on Sunday arrested 30 persons, nine of them from the victim's family. Senior police officers said that the woman has been shifted to a shelter home for the time being and she was being counseled."

The shocking punishment was given to her after the panchayat accused the woman of killing her nephew, Vardi Singh.

As per police officials, Vardi Singh's wife suspected that his aunt had killed him and thus, approached the local community panchayat which after hearing the case publicly declared her guilty and said she should be punished for what she has done.

As per the report, the woman was stripped at a place in the middle of the village. The panchayat members blackened her face with coal and forced her to sit on a donkey. After all this humiliation, she was paraded through out the village for nearly an hour.

"We have arrested 30 persons including nine from the woman's family. We have booked them under relevant sections of the IPC," officials were quoted as saying in the daily's report.

Meanwhile, the woman has been sent to a shelter home where she is being counselled.
