23 December 2014, Rajasthan

A village council (panchayat) in a Barmer village in Rajasthan ordered that the nose of an alleged Dalit rape victim be chopped off, reportedly at the behest of the rapist.

The victim on Monday met the district’s superintendent of police and sought police protection from the villagers and the rapist, who happens to be her father-in-law.
