A jat (caste) panchayat in rural Maharashtra had allegedly asked a villager to allow members of the panchayat to rape his wife if he is unable to repay the loan taken from the panchayat. Andhashraddha Nirmulan Samiti had come out in support of the complainant couple. However, there is no official complaint filed in the case with any police station.
Later on Wednesday evening, the Gondhali jat panchayat apologised to the family and asked them to return to the village. Panch member Sham Ugale told The Asian Age, “It was a lack of communication or misunderstanding between us. We are all united and wish to live in peace. They will not be harassed and everything has been settled.”
