A 30-year-old woman from Rajasthan was allegedly gangraped by her husband and two of his brothers who tattooed expletives on her forehead and her hand after her family failed to fulfill their demands for dowry, Alwar police said on 27 June.
The victim alleged that her in-laws would beat her up and demand a dowry of Rs 51,000 - something she claims has been going on since she married Jagannath - who hails from Reni village - in January 2015.
"Her husband and brothers-in-law allegedly raped her and tattooed profanities on her forehead which her parents later made an attempt to get removed," a police official said.
She has been living with her parents since then, Mahila police station SHO Abdul Wahid said, adding the woman has still marks on her forehead and hand.
An FIR has been registered under sections of 498-A (Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act), 376 (punishment for rape)and 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) of IPC and an investigation in the case has been initiated, he said.
The police are yet to make any arrests.
