Uttar Pradesh: A man from Mathura lodged a complaint against his neighbour, who allegedly tried to rape his mother, after the village panchayat advised him to “settle the case” with five shoe strikes. A case has been registered against a resident of the Baklagadhi village, Pappu, for allegedly trying to rape an elderly woman on Friday night, the police said.
On Saturday, the village panchayat asked the victim to settle the case by slapping Pappu, her neighbour, five times with her slipper, they added. Unhappy with the panchayat’s justice, the victim’s son filed a police complaint on Sunday. A hunt is on to nab Pappu, who is absconding, the police said.
