Dehradun : We have read about male chauvinism and how in the days of yore suspicious men having doubts on the fidelity of their women, forced them to put on chastity belts and thereby ensure their loyalty.
However, this is all but part of history and perhaps no where in recent modern times has one read or heard of the ancient practice being put in vogue.
But according to a report from Indore, a young man, Sohan Lal Chauhan decided to tear a page from history and practice it on his wife.
His wife, who was forced to wear a chastity belt for the last four years, could not bear the humiliation, embarrassment and above all uncomfort and apparently enough became enough for her. She decided to end her life and thereby her misery, consumed poison.
A resident of Indiras Nagar in the Sayontiaganj area of Indore, she was rushed to the hospital, where both the doctors and policemen who had taken her for medical attention were dumbfounded to learn of the reported “misdoings’ of her husband, a worker in an auto garage.
She told the cops and the doctors on duty that her husband had forcibly put a chastity belt round her private organ and locked the same.
The lock had two keys, which her husband took with him when he went to work after locking the belt and opened it only when he returned home from work.
All during this time the woman was forced to keep the belt around her vitals and bear not only the pain but the humiliation and uncomfort.
The police took the keys from the man and gave it to the doctors to open the lock and take the women out of her misery.
City S P, Rajesh Raghuvanshi is reported to have said that after receiving a report from the doctors, action will be taken against the young man as under law.
