Delhi: Woman confined, starved for 2 months, rescued

New Delhi: A woman, kept in confinement and reportedly starved by her in-laws for over two months, was on Sunday rescued by the police after a raid at their Jaitpur residence. The woman's family alleged that she was mistreated by her husband and in-laws after she complained of health issues.

"When she went to her husband's house she was fine. Her husband and her mother-in-law tortured her for the past two years. When she fell ill, they refused to have her treated. When the washing machine broke down, they refused to have it repaired and asked her to get the money from us," the victim's mother said.

The victim was allegedly not allowed to meet anyone, and was starved.

She is currently under medical supervision.
