Patna: 5th December 2012
A woman was found dead in Bihar’s Purnia district after a village panchayat accused her of committing “adultery” and hit her. The police denied reports that she was beaten to death, but suspected a case of suicide. The body of Bibi Shahzadi was found on Thursday evening after she was “slapped” by panchayat members who charged her with having a relationship with one of her relatives, Purnia Superintendent of Police Amit Lodha told The Hindu on the phone.
