Jaipur: A woman was allegedly forced to strip
by her relatives who had threatened to kill her husband in
Banswara district of Rajasthan.

"The alleged incident occurred on March 13 at Nathpura
village, under Kuhsalgarh police station circle, where the

attend a function", Banswara SP Amandeep Singh said today.

The husband, Prem Singh, alleged in his complaint that at
the function, Kunji Hariya and Ekan, his wife Kali`s relatives
threatened to kill him as they had an old dispute with him,

"Seeing her husband in trouble, Kali requested them not to
harm him but let them go. The two relatives then put a
condition that she strip before them before they were let
off", he said referring to the FIR.

"Kali, as per the claim of her husband, did this to save
him", SP said.

claim has any basis and then appropriate action will be taken
