Man ties wife by chain for being unable to deliver child


Panaji: A house wife unable to give birth to child was tied with chain for days at Goa. The victim has been identified as Sonmatia Devi, a resident of Mayapur village. She was rescued by police after a complaint was lodged by her brother.

She was married to Sohan Yadav of her village ten years ago. On being unable to deliver a child even after two years of marriage, she was subjected to inhuman torture by her in-laws. She was even beaten up.

Unable to bear with the torture, she returned to her parents’ house from where Sohan brought his wife back with the promise that she won’t be tortured. But she was tortured continuously and was tied by chain so that she couldn’t flee the house. The chain was loosened at times to enable her to do household works.
