HYDERABAD: A tribal woman in Telangana went through inhumane torture for a week from family members for not turning up for work. The brutal incident took place in Telengana’s Nagarkurnool district. The 27-year-old Chenchu woman was imprisoned and tortured from June 8 to 19 for refusing to work in the field. Apart from the woman's sister, a tenant farmer named Venkatesh, and her brother-in-law have been arrested.

The woman and her sister had borrowed money from farmer Venkatesh. Both of them bought the money based on the agreement that they would work in his field. However, after a few days, the woman got into a dispute with her sister, refused to work and left the place. This incident irked Venkatesh, who launched a search for her. The woman was found in the nearby village and was brought to the leased land where she was forced to work. Brutal torture ensued as Venkatesh and his wife along with the victim’s sister thrashed her with sticks and smeared chill powder on her body and also on her private parts.

The gang also tore apart the dress of the victim as they believed it would force her to stay on the premises. The victim’s elder sister and brother-in-law also joined hands with Venkatesh to torture her. The woman, who suffered burns including in her private parts, is undergoing treatment at the hospital. The police have registered a case against the accused for sexual assault and attempted murder.

According to the doctors, the woman is still in shock over the incident and they said it would take some time for her to come out from the horror of the attack she suffered for one full week.
