In another inhuman incident where a 27-year-old married woman from Saundana village in Beed, Maharashtra, was brutally raped, starved and her menstrual blood was sold for Rs 50,000 for some witchcraft rituals, officials said here on Friday.
As per the sources, Shiv Sena (UBT) MLC Manisha Kayande raised the issue in the Maharashtra Legislative Council and demanded strict punishment for the perpetrators of the crime.
The victim woman has stated in her complaint that she was starved for three days during her monthly periods and her menstrual blood was collected and sold to someone for Rs 50,000 for some black magic purposes,” Kayande said.
