A pregnant woman in Telangana was allegedly stripped and paraded naked relatives of her husband’s first wife in DC Thanda village in the district.
Quoting police, the news agency PTI reported that the incident took place yesterday in Wardhannapet mandal.
Ravi, who is a farmer by profession had married Swaroopa before secretly marrying another woman in March last year.
Ravi began to live with his second wife in Warangal.
However, after repeated pleas from Swaroopa, the village panchayat intervened and asked Ravi to pay Rs 7.5 lakh to her and her two children.
While the hearing was underway, a heated argument between Ravi and Swaroopa broke with the former’s pregnant second wife taking her husband’s side.
This provoked Swaroopa’s family, who allegedly attacked Ravi and his second wife before stripping and parading her naked.
The police said that the pregnant lady had also received injuries.
Swaroopa, Ravi and four others have been detained with they being booked under various sections of the IPS.
The hunt is on for the remaining three, who are believed to be on the run.
Police said the victim was admitted to a local hospital and probe is on.
