'Unacceptable,' Says India After Woman's Arm is Chopped Off By Saudi Employer

Saudi Arabia,9 Oct 2015,

58-year-old Kasthuri Munirathinam from India had her arm chopped off by her Saudi employer who she was trying to escape from. She had moved to Saudi Arabia 3 months ago to work as a domestic help. Her family in Tamil Nadu, India, says she was being tortured and starved by her employer. They say the employer was angry that Kasthuri had complained about torture and abuse she was facing there, and how she was often starved. After the attack Kasthuri fell down and also had spinal injuries. India has asked Saudi Arabia to file attempted murder charges and is looking to bring Kasthuri back to India once she stabilizes.

Woman #Sexually #Abused by Father-in-Law for #Dowry

October 7, 2015

Faridabad, 30 Sept 2015,

In a dowry case, a woman has filed a complaint of physical, mental and sexual against her in-laws. Married in 2008, she says her father-in-law and mother-in-law had been harassing and torturing her physically and mentally for dowry. Her father-in-law had also been sexually abusing her. The cases of sexual abuse of women by their in-laws for dowry are far more frequent than reported.

Death of woman who set herself ablaze sparks protest

Srinagar, 28 Sept 2015,

A 34-year-old, mother of two, set herself ablaze after prolonged domestic violence for dowry by her in-laws. After the neighbors found the woman in a critical condition, they took her to the hospital where she died. She had received 90 per cent burn injuries. “They used to harass her every day for dowry. On Friday afternoon, she called us and told us to visit her as her in-laws, including her husband, threatened to kill her. But by the time we reached there, the incident had taken place,” said a relative of the victim. Such incidents of dowry related murders or suicides, earlier unheard of in the state of Kashmir, are becoming more frequent now. There have been about 300 cases of dowry related violence reported in 2014. There have been three dowry related deaths since May this year.

They Refused to Accept that a 60-year-old #Dalit Woman Could Have Been #Raped

September 30, 2015

After raping her in April 2014, the woman says, her 27-yr-old upper-caste ‘assaulter’ threw her on some bushes and asked, “Why aren’t you dead yet?”. (Source: Express photo by Arun Janardhanan)

Eighteen months after this 60-yr-old Dalit woman was raped, she is still waiting for the police to file a chargesheet against her assailant, 27-year-old Chinna Durai. While her medical examination confirmed rape and revealed serious injuries, she has not received any compensation.

She doesn’t remember the exact date of the rape, only that “it was the day after I had voted in the elections that brought (Narendra) Modi to power (April 25, 2014)”. The 27-year-old, said a local sand mafia leader, reportedly entered her house in the Dalit hamlet of Alangulam, about 20 km from Tirunelveli town, dragged her out, and raped and beat her up. Durai raped her over the next half an hour, before throwing her on some thorny bushes nearby and shouting, “Why are you not dead yet?” She somehow dragged herself to a house in the neighbourhood, she says, and lay there in a pool of blood till morning. The police and even the nurses ridiculed her and refused to believe she had been raped, even though she was bleeding.  – See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/the-silenced-letter-story-of-a-dalit-rape-victim-fighting-to-restore-her-sc-name/#sthash.is119M2q.dpuf
