In a shocking case emerging from Batala, Punjab, a 25-year-old physically challenged woman has attempted suicide by consuming some poisonous substances at her house. The act was live-streamed on Facebook as she went into detail about why she was doing what she was.
Luckily friends of the girl were online at the time and raced to the scene and informed the police. The friends then took the young lady to the civil hospital. Dr’s have reported that her condition is critical.
According to the information from the girl’s friends and family, around 2 months ago, the victim had filed a police complaint, alleging that a youth, Amandeep Singh of Chabal village, who is a fitness trainer at a gym in Batala, sexually exploited her on the pretext of marriage.
“Amandeep also stayed at my house after performing shagun ceremony at a religious place but when I asked him to marry me, he started avoiding me first and then refused outrightly. When I approached his family, they threatened me of dire consequences,” the police complaint states.
The victim alleged that she lodged a complaint with Batala SSP, who marked an inquiry to DSP (city) but he did not take any action against Amandeep.
The young lady even staged a protest outside the SSP office, after which the concerned DSP called her again and assured action would be taken. Yet two months on nothing has happened. In the video she live-streamed, the victim said that Amandeep and his family should be held responsible for her death.
