7 December 2014, Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh
A 16 year old school girl who was raped by her teacher and school headmaster over a prolonged period, died after being subject to three abortions.

Was this #widow’s death ‘sati’ or murder?

15 December 2014, Patna, Bihar

65 year old Gahwa devi’s family says she committed ‘sati.’ The custom of where widows committed suicide or were often pressured to do so by relatives, has been long banned in India, but still continues. Often it the sons or male relatives find this a convenient way to usurp the widow’s property. A judicial probe has been ordered in this case, as there are also conflicting explanations. The son claims, she died of a heart attack when she got the news of her husband’s death, and so he cremated them together.
