On 4th July 2017, A Christian woman and a mother of two children was brutally beaten up and raped at Haridwar, Uttar Pradesh.

She was beaten up brutally and raped up to the point that she nearly died on account of her Christian faith.

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 the 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 went to the SP office along with an advocate and narrated the incident and the complaint was taken. After submitting the complaint, they had gone to a government hospital where she, at first, denied the treatment. However, after pleading with hospital staff she was admitted.
