A young girl, 12, was sexually assaulted in Chhattisgarh’s Kawardha district and was then forced to shave her head for “purification”. Not just that her family was ordered by the head of the village to throw a party with meat and drinks – all a part of the so-called purification. One would think that the girl’s attacker too would be given a hefty punishment, considering the girl with no fault of hers was given such a punishment? No.
He was let off with a fine and everything was fine.
