A woman was allegedly stripped and paraded naked while her husband was beaten up for opposing “local goons” in Andryan village of Jehanabad area here.
Accused Shanti Swarup and his associates allegedly attacked the couple on June 24 after they objected to trees being uprooted from their fields and their hut being damaged, police said.
The couple, along with some villagers, had staged a protest outside the Jehanabad police station Friday. An FIR was registered Friday night after SP Sonia Singh intervened. Efforts are on to arrest the accused, police said.
False cases play havoc with the crime statistics and tend to trivialise the offence of rape.
