According to reports, the incident occurred after the woman's son eloped with a girl.

Belgaum- In an appalling incident in Belgaum district, a woman was allegedly assaulted, stripped, paraded naked, and tied to an electric pole. The police took immediate action in response to the incident that unfolded last Monday. According to reports, the incident occurred after the woman's son eloped with a girl.

Police revealed that the girl was intended to be engaged to someone else, and upon learning about the elopement, her family attacked the boy's house in New Vantamuri village, causing damage. The girl's family reportedly dragged the boy's mother, stripped her, paraded her, and eventually tied her to an electric pole. Prompt police intervention led to the woman's rescue. Seven people have been arrested in connection with the incident, and an investigation is underway. Additional forces have been deployed to prevent any untoward incidents.

Belagavi Police Commissioner Siddharamappa stated that 24-year-old Ashok and 18-year-old Priyanka, belonging to the same community and village, were in love with each other.

He explained that the couple fled the village around 12:30 am on Monday night. Enraged by this, the girl's parents and relatives entered the boy's house and subjected his mother to inhumane treatment. Siddharamappa said, "On receiving information at four in the morning, our police sub-inspector visited the village, followed by other senior officers. Seven people have been arrested." A case has been registered at Kakati police station.

Commenting on the incident, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah assured, "Strict action will be taken against those who have committed the crime." Describing the incident as "extremely inhumane," he added, "This has left the entire society hanging its head in shame. Our government will not tolerate such despicable acts for any reason." He emphasized the government's responsibility to provide justice to the victim's family by ensuring the harshest punishment for the culprits.

Home Minister Parmeshwar G. who visited the area, termed the incident inhumane. He said 10-15 members of the girl's family attacked the youth's mother, who was alone at home. The police rescued the woman and took her to the hospital for treatment. The accused arrested in the case will be produced in court, and efforts are being made to trace the couple who left the house and bring them back.
