“All the women in the village are happy with the decision”

An Indian man accused of attempted rape has been released on parole, but has to wash and iron at his own expense the underwear of all 2,000 women in his village for six months, AFP reported.

Lalan Kuman, 20, is a laundress by profession. He must provide the powder and the necessary material for washing and ironing the underwear of all the women in the village of Majhor in the state of Bihar. Such is the decision of the court.

Kumar was arrested in April for attempted rape.

“All the women in the village are happy with the decision,” said Nasima Khatun of the village council. “This is a historic decision. It will strengthen respect for women and help protect their dignity.” Nasima Khatun is among the people who will control the implementation of the decision.

Indian laws have become stricter following the collective rape of a young woman who died of injuries in 2012 in Delhi. The case shook the whole world.

In 2020, more than 28,000 rapes were reported in India. The police have long been criticized for not doing enough to prevent such crimes and for their perpetrators to reach the courts.
