According to the police officials, “The incidents are being taken from 2017 till date. The complainant is a housewife. She was married at the age of 18. Her mother-in-law was forcing her for the child. She was taunted for not conceiving the child based on which her mother-in-law met a woman who claimed to be a Godman, who will help her.”

The police added, “The victim refused to undergo such rituals but still her husband and in-laws forced her to undergo such malpractice for which she was beaten and abused repeatedly. She faced a lot of humiliation and was manhandled by godman. After facing such humiliation, she approached the police and registered the case.
