Press Trust of India, Wednesday May 5, 2010, Chandigarh

A woman in her early 20s, today alleged she was gangraped by her
husband's friends at his behest as she had not been able to meet his
dowry demands.

The woman narrated her tale of woes to Director General
(Administration) Swaranjit Singh, a police department spokesman said.

The woman, who belongs to an affluent Dalit family from Ahar village
in Panipat district, alleged that her husband, a Jat from Naru-Kheri
village in Karnal, had been harassing her to bring more dowry ever
since the two got married in April 2009, the spokesman said.

In her complaint, she alleged that when she did not meet his demands,
he took her to a Tantrik, who along with some other friends of her
husband gangraped her.

Rohtak Range IG V Kamaraja has been asked to look into the woman's
complaint and submit a report within one week.
