Woman Forced Into Marriage Refused To Have Sex With Husband, So He Poured Acid On Her Genitals

It's a sad thing that in this day and age, in some cultures and families, women are still being treated like property. Sadly, it's still a fact of life that many women around the world have to live with every day. One woman is now fighting for her life after her husband seriously injured her because she refused to have sex with him. He poured acid over her genitals, causing extensive burns.

The unnamed woman had been married to Ved Pal for seven years, and the couple had two children together before things went downhill. They became estranged, mainly due to the fact that her husband and inlaws were abusive toward her.

That didn't stop Pal from going to his wife when he decided he wanted to have sex. The wife refused to be intimate with her husband, and the domestic situation took a disturbing turn.

Kedar Singh, the victim's father, says Pal beat his wife, then got the help of his brother, Ajay Pal, to help him pour acid over her genital area.

Neighbors heard the ruckus and called Singh. He rushed to her side and brought her to a hospital. She's now fighting for her life, says the father.

"Her condition is critical," a hospital spokesperson confirmed. The woman has extensive and severe burns to her thighs and genital area.

Police are investigating and have found that there was a domestic squabble at the house the day the woman was attacked. "The case has been registered and the police are trying to arrest persons named in the FIR (First Information Report).

"We are trying to ascertain the nature of chemical used in the crime," said Harish Chandra, a spokesperson for the local police.

At this point there is no word on whether the husband, or his brother, have been arrested. The investigation is ongoing.

Domestic violence is still a serious problem in India, where women are still considered second-class citizens. Despite the fact that advocacy groups have tried to raise awareness and the government has tried to make more stringent laws, the problem hasn't abated. Millions of women in India report being battered and assaulted by their husband and his family on a regular basis.

"My husband came into the room, locked the door. He turned up the music so that no one could hear us outside. Then he took out his belt and started to hit me. He kept whipping me for the next 30 minutes," one victim told the BBC. "As he was doing this, he warned me that I shouldn't make a sound, I shouldn't cry, I shouldn't scream, because if I did, he was going to hit me even harder. He was hitting me with his belt, his hands... soon he began to choke me. He was just so angry."

Reports have been increasing and more and more women are standing up for their rights, but the problem is still too out of control for many women to feel safe in their own homes.
