Balasore: Locals shaved half of a woman’s head and then paraded her around the village for allegedly committing a ‘crime’ of going out with a distant relative. The incident occurred at Sanakalia Pada under Nilagiri Police limits on Saturday.

The woman was allegedly roaming around with her brother-in-law (sister's husband) and was spotted by villagers. Angered by her actions, they forcefully shaved her head and shamefully moved her around the village.

The victim’s brother lodged a formal complaint at Nilagiri Police Station following which the Police have taken two women and four men of the same locality into custody.

The victim has been taken to nearby hospital for an in-detail medical examination. A further probe has been initiated into the matter at hand.
