Woman Stripped Naked, Assaulted In Karnataka’s Belagavi


Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Tuesday that action has been taken and seven people have been arrested so far in connection with the incident in Karnataka’s Belagavi district where a woman was stripped naked, paraded and assaulted after her son eloped with a girl of the same village.

Speaking about the incident, Parameshwara told ANI, “It is unfortunate that it happened. One boy, about 24 years old, fell in love with another girl from the same village and same community. They had run away together and in retaliation, the girl’s parents destroyed the boy’s house and forcefully took away the mother of the boy, removed her clothes and tied her up to an electric pole.”

“Immediately, our police went and rescued (the woman). She was brought to the hospital. We have registered a case and we have already arrested about seven people. Further investigation is going on. We are also trying to find where this boy and the girl have run away,” said Parameshwara.

A 42-year-old woman was stripped naked, paraded and assaulted after being tied to an electric pole yesterday in Belagavi district after her son eloped with a girl.

BJP MLA, Bharath Shetty also spoke to ANI about the Belagavi incident and said that BJP is planning to hold a big protest in Belagavi tomorrow against the state government’s policies and the law and order situation.

“Yes, we have planned to call a larger protest in Belagavi. Protest is required, people need to know what’s happening, and people need to know the attitude of this government and what is their attitude towards the people. This incident shows the failure of law and order in the state,” said Bharath Shetty.

He further lashed out at the Congress government in the state and said that there are a lot of problems in the state, whether it be with power ministry, distribution of scholarships to the students or social justice, everything is in a bad state.

Earlier, on Monday, Karnata Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, in a social media post, expressed his disappointment in the incident.

“Extremely inhumane. This has made the whole society dizzy. Our government will not tolerate such heinous acts for any reason. Many people have already been arrested in connection with the case. It is our full responsibility to provide justice to the aggrieved family by taking action to ensure that the culprits are punished severely,” Siddaramaiah posted on X. (ANI)
