On 4th July 2017, Christian woman and a mother of two was brutally raped and beaten at Haridwar, Uttarkhand.

Two hindutva activists brutally raped and beaten up a Christian woman up to the point that she nearly died on account of her faith in Christ.

She was abducted and taken to a secluded place by two persons of the same village. She was forcibly drunk alcohol, beaten up and raped many times over from afternoon to evening by the two.

Next day, she went to Laksar police station to make a complaint, she was made to wait since morning to evening 5’o’ clock but no complaint was registered. Then, Police took her to the village council saying it is something that needs to be dealt by them only. There she was pressurized to resolve the issue through a compromise, if she wants she can beat up those two persons.

The next day she and her husband along with an advocate went to the police station narrated the incident to SSP office and the complaint was taken apprehensively.
