Fishermen at Rasalpur Ganga Ghat in Samastipur district, over 40 km away, saw her floating senseless the next morning and rescued her. “My husband, his uncle, my mother-in-law and a family friend of theirs took me to the Ganga bridge in the evening in a car. My husband and his friend grabbed my hands while my husband’s uncle and his friend grabbed my feet to throw me down into the Ganga to die,” Kumari told a magistrate Saturday.
