Minimal punishment of “five shoe slaps” for gang-rape accused: Haryana Panchayat

Hapur: A panchayat in Haryana ordered five shoes slaps as punishment for two accused of gang-raping a girl in Hisar district.

What is more shocking is the panchayat also ordered the alleged rape victim to leave the village.

The girl had lodged a police complaint, but before the officials could initiate any action, the panchayat decided and ordered that the accused will receive “five shoe strikes” as a punishment.

It seems that for Panchayat, shoe strikes were enough as punishment for committing rape.

This is not the first incident of rape reported from Haryana but it seems the panchayats in the state are not much bothered.
