NEW DELHI, Aug 30 : The rights group Amnesty International has called on Indian authorities to ensure the safety of two young women after their local village council ordered them to be raped and paraded naked after their brother eloped with a married woman.
The unelected all-male village council in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh, on July 30 ordered that a woman, 23, and her sister, 15, be raped and paraded naked with their faces blackened after their brother ran away with a woman from the village's dominant Jat caste. The sisters and their family, from the underprivileged Dalit caste, have since fled the village and are hiding in New Delhi.     ?ALJAZEERA
