Anti #Dowry Activist #Rapes a Dowry Victim


Mumbai, December 29, 2014

40-year-old, Manoj Shankar Sharma, who claimed to be a social activist helping women being abused for dowry, has been arrested and charged with raping a dowry victim.  The woman had approached Sharma to help her when her in-laws started demanding dowry and torturing her. The accused had encouraged her to file a dowry harassment case and got the husband arrested.

She said that on the pretext of helping her get back the amount she had already given as dowry, the accused had taken her to a hotel in Ulhasnagar in 2012. He had then spiked her soft drink with sleeping pills and raped her. He also threatened to kill her if she complained. She added that he had since then raped her six to seven times.
