An unidentified 24 year old man from the Dalit caste, the lowest caste in the traditional Indian caste system, eloped with a 21 year old woman from a different caste. Their marriage had been forbidden by the woman’s family as she was betrothed to another man within her own community.
The two eloped and the local villagers and families were unable to locate them.
So the local village leader ordered that the man’s two younger sisters be raped by the village men, have their faces blackened with ash, and paraded naked through the village unless the couple return.
The runaway couple was eventually captured and returned to the village. The village leader decided that the punishment of raping the two younger sisters would still go ahead. The young man was arrested and imprisoned after his lover’s family accused him of kidnapping. She was still forced into the marriage pre-arranged by her family.
The sisters and their parents fled to Dehli after their house was ransacked and the sisters brought their case to the Supreme Court, seeking justice for themselves and their family.
