Sperm denotes Ownership? 6-Year-Old Indian Rape Victim Ordered to Marry Rapist’s Son
A disturbing development just occurred in India, a country rife with the problem of rape in recent months. In the northwestern state of Rajasthan, a child, raped by a middle-aged man, was ordered by her caste to marry the rapist’s child son. This event occurred even as the child was raped again by the same person during negotiations. Now police have arrested the rapist and are investigating the victim’s caste.
The incident occurred in the village of Keshavpura, located in the southeastern part of Rajasthan, India. The child, a 6-year-old girl, was raped about two weeks ago by a 40-year-old man only known as Kailash. After the incident was reported to the local caste, the elders refused to involve the police. Instead, they called a council, known as a panchayat, to discuss the matter and iron out a resolution.
