Jaipur: A woman has been paraded naked in Rajasthan's Sikar district by her husband following an argument in their house, eyewitnesses said Monday.
Only a few days back, another woman was paraded naked on a donkey in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district by a kangaroo village court.
The woman was paraded naked in Kankara village in Sikar, over 115 km from Jaipur, and a piece of cloth was stuffed in her mouth. She fainted after the incident, the eyewitnesses said.
Her husband threw her out of their house Sunday afternoon after a heated argument, the eyewitnesses said.
However, police have denied that she was paraded naked in the village.
Police said the 42-year-old-woman was thrown out of the house in a half-naked state. She has three children.
"We have been given this (above mentioned) version by their (couple) 10-year-old daughter. We do not have reasons to disbelief her. We have arrested the husband," Superintendent of Police Ravi told IANS Monday.
Police said the man often beat his wife in a drunken state. After an altercation, he threw her out of the house in a half naked condition. When villagers tried to stop him, he threatened them too, police said.
"We came to know about the incident Sunday night after which an FIR has been filed against the husband," said a police official from Danta Ramgarh.
