Bhopal: A panchayat in a Madhya Pradesh village issued a diktat to a minor rape victim to throw community feast for her “purification” and declared her outcast when she failed to meet the demand, official reports said on Thursday.

The 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly raped by a youth of her village, Dongarpur, in Rajgarh district last week, on Thursday lodged a complaint against the panchayat in this regard with the local women welfare committee.

 

“The rape victim along with her mother filed a complaint with the Rajgarh district women welfare committee seeking action against the panchayat or village elders for ordering their ostracisation for not entertaining the locals with a community feast in order to purify her”, a member of the committee said.

The girl was waylaid when she was returning home and then raped by the accused.

The accused was later arrested and sent to judicial custody.
