It was reported that the victim was identified as Geeta, who was said to be mentally unstable.
The victim, Geeta said in a statement, “I cried and requested my brother and sister-in-law many times but they wouldn’t care. Because of continuous chaining, my hands used to swell, still, they did not unlock me. They used to torture me daily with chili powder and stuffed a cloth in my mouth. I was confined in a locked room and had to perform every activity in that room itself. They did not even allow me to use toilets. My parents died when I was young since then I have been staying with my brother”.
Following the incident, a case was registered under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint).
However, police officials are investigating into the matter.
