Kendrapara:

A 24-year-old woman was on Saturday allegedly stripped naked and beaten up by in-laws in Odisha’s Kendrapara district, and the video of the incident has been widely shared on social media, a police officer said.

The woman’s uncle has filed a complaint with the local police station, following which a probe has been launched in the matter, he said.

According to Kabuli Barik, the inspector of Nikirai police station in the district, some locals in Koruk village had tried to intervene to rescue the woman, who was apparently tortured for not being able to fulfil dowry demands.

Her family members, however, did not pay heed to any of their requests.

The woman’s statement has been recorded, Ms Barik said, adding that her in-laws have fled the village and a special police team has been constituted to hunt down the offenders.
